Thomas J. Sims – physician, actor, and author – began his career as a family physician in Oregon after leaving the wilds of the Alaskan Arctic where he spent two life-changing years working as a frontier bush doctor.

Tom chronicles his adventures and adaptation to life and work in the Arctic in an exciting new memoir “On Call in the Arctic: A Doctor’s Pursuit of Life, Love and Miracles in the Alaska Frontier” – a high adventure, inspirational story readers won’t want to miss.


Tom loved medicine, but his goal for retirement was to write full time. Now he is thrilled to have a literary agent represent his work and looks forward to spreading his story of adaptation and work in the Arctic to people around the world.
