On professionalism l.jpg

On Professionalism

“To begin with, the fact must be accepted that one cannot expect to be a skilful practitioner of medicine in the 4 or 5 years allotted…. Medicine is not a trade to be learned but a profession to be entered. It is an ever widening field that requires the continued study and prolonged experience in close contact with the sick.”
