Henry Ward Trueblood MD

Henry Ward Trueblood, MD, grew up in a small Iowa town where his father was the town doctor. By the age of ten he was regularly making house calls with his father on people too ill to travel. He graduated from Earlham College and then Stanford Medical School with AOA honors in 1964. In his second year of surgical training at University of Pennsylvania he was drafted and assigned to the first primitive Marine Corps hospital in DaNang, Vietnam and later to the Naval Hospital on China Beach. He completed his surgical training at Stanford after the war. Trueblood recently retired as Trauma attending at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, a Level One Trauma Center, where he still teaches third year Stanford Medical students bed-side skills. He is the winner of two teaching awards at Stanford, and alumni of the year in 2010 from Earlham College. He is the author of a book of poetry, "To Bind Up Their Wounds" (2008) available through Amazon. His memoir, "A Surgeon's War: My Year in Vietnam," was published by Astor and Lennox in November 2015.
