As was the case with so many other walks of life in the Orange Free State the medical profession had qualified as well as successful unqualified practitioners in its ranks. There were however also those who were a disgrace to the profession.

Aspects such as disease, accidents and medicine are discussed to correct the abovementioned impression.
