Making a Medical Practice in an Uneasy World: Some Thoughts from a Century Ago.
Howell, Joel D.
Academic Medicine, v72 n11 p977-81 Nov 1997
Examines the advice offered by David Cathell in his popular 1882 book, "The Physician Himself," and looks at parallels in more recent medical education history, including physician overcrowding, medical education, technological advances such as the telephone and automobile, and the sensitive issues physicians must address. Concludes that in any era, being an excellent physician requires more than good science. (Author/MSE)
