Don’t trust professors

Nov 07, 2011


medicine, quote


Andrew Smith recounting memories of the late Professor Henry Miller. He refers to a patient who Miller had previously seen:

“She didn’t trust professors, she said, and, when I told her Henry was now a professor, she said firmly in a tone which brooked no contradiction, “Oh, but he was a good doctor.”

Remembering Henry, Ed Stephen Lock and Heather Windle, p81, BMA press 1977.

I also like Miller’s thoughts on medical curriculum reform”

Curriculum review simply results in the same subjects being taught in a different order.
