Most people believe that doctors learn everything they need to know from medical school, internship, and residency. Those dauntingly thick textbooks sitting on bookshelves in medical offices serve as a constant reminder of the dedication and sacrifice required by anyone heeding the call of medicine as a profession.
While the learning that takes place during medical school and residency is substantial and should never be minimized, the learning that occurs after residency in the clinical environment is equally important.
The doctor-patient relationship has always been the heart of a doctor's practice and sometimes patient teaches us memorable things.
What valuable lessons you have learnt from your patients?
