Living With Hippocrates in a Changing Medical World, With Particular Reference to the Patient-Physician Relationship
Kirsner, Joseph B.
Archives of Internal Medicine. 1992 Nov; 152(11): 2184-2188.
My purpose here is to comment on medicine's changing scene from the perspective of 57 years as a full-time teacher, researcher, administrator, and especially as a physician still actively involved in the care of sick people. My conclusions: science continues to supplant empiricism. Today's multidimensional approach to human illness excels past medical efforts. But professional skills and technologic advances notwithstanding, medicine also must renew its traditional humanitarian principles to best serve sick people.
