The scene studied for my ICRP was the Clinica de Tibas. The clinic is a cooperative funded by the CCSS and an EBAIS clinic as well. In order to observe the major areas ofthe clinic, I spent a week in three different sections ofthe clinic: the small clinic in San Miguel, Family Medicine, and Emergencies. My primary reasons for spending time in the clinic were to observe the relationship between doctors and patients, the efficiency of a cooperatively run clinic, and to gain a general understanding of how the Costa Rican health care system functions. looked at how doctor-patient relationships at the clinic seemed to differ from doctor-patient relationships in the U.S. as well as how doctor-patient relationships differed in different areas of the clinic.
