Doctor's Behavior

Dr Stafford Clark, Director of the York Clinic at Guy's Hospital London once said,"Doctors should have humility, honesty, humanity and a sense of humour to deal with tragedies. Instead a lot of time was spent teaching medical students to be expert technologists. For the first 18 months spent in a medical school, the only connection with humanity was studying the corpse.

He added,"As things were now the public was getting disenchanted with doctors finding some too busy, others too technical.

(This was reported by Paul Vaughan from the Eatorum Mediterranean Medical Congress in Nicosia, Cyprus.).
