We owe a lot , to our ancestors for making our journey smooth and purposeful in our pursuit , of healing the mankind . It is because of their meticulous clinical acumen , passion , dedication ,sacrifice we are enjoying the fruits of success .
Though there are thousands of them , one life that always fascinates me is that of Harvey Cushing. His fame went to dizzy heights after his publication of biography of William Osler .
A book every medical professional must read and cherish especially the elite cardiologists !
I wonder ,what Harvey Cushing , if alive would make a difference in the current world of medical science contaminated with commerce , hyped up technology , and the near extinct bed side clinical skills.
