Practicing medicine has become a contract rather than a covenant with the patient. Our professionalism is being eroded. This is a 'how-to' book for young physicians who may not otherwise learn what the Art of Medicine is supposed to be from their role models.

Practicing medicine has become a contract rather than a covenant with the patient. Many (most?) people have lost control in maintaining a balance in their lives, resulting in stress, huge debts and unhappiness. As a result, they cannot perform any job as well as their potential. We need to relearn the Art of Living.

Book DescriptionDuring my nearly 50 years in medicine (closer to 60 years if you count the many years I visited patients in the hospital or their home with my physician father), I slowly realized that we physicians are losing, or never had, good bedside manner like my father and my role models did. As a result, and for many other reasons, we have lost the trust of the public. Practicing medicine has become a contract rather than a covenant with the patient.

Life is your career, not your work. If you aren't enjoying life, you can't effectively practice the art of medicine or any other occupation.

Furthermore, the history of medicine programmatically played a role in at least two academic domains (history proper and medical education), adjusting historical narratives of medical knowledge to its audience. Accordingly, we underscore that the history of both science and medicine, as traditionally defined, already provides room for almost the whole spectrum of approaches to history. An exchange familiar to most historians of medicine recently took place at our school of medicine during a discussion about the inclusion of medical history in the curriculum.

.....read this book. This book was written from the heart. For the most part, it is written for an audience of young physicians but with an awareness that the patient may also be reading. It is told from the perspective of the experienced physician, in this case the author, Edward C. Rosenow III, M.D., who worked at Mayo Clinic for 31 years who learned "that many times the gift of caring and compassion are more effective in healing than the power of modern medicine." There are two main sections: The Art of Living and the Art of MedicinePeople will find it an invaluable guide for their own life and work.
I particularly enjoyed the chapters on How to Be a Patient, Qualities of the Respected Person, Simplify Your Life, Your Relationship to People You Work With. The chapter called End of Life Issues was incredibly well done. Amazing work.
A major philosophy repeated in the book was: "FAMILY, FRIENDS, FUN/FELLOWSHIP, FORGIVE, FORGET ....... work." The book is sprinkled with quotes collected by Dr. Rosenow over the years. Colette says, "What a wonderful life I've had, I only wish I realized it sooner!"
The book is filled with lots of advice such as these gems from the section on volunteering:
"The gift of self-giving can be as simple as smiling!"
"The best thing you have to give is yourself!"
"Volunteering develops compassion, improves your self-esteem, and creates a transient euphoria."
The casual style of the writing gave me the feeling that I was listening and learning from a compassionate mentor. The book is published "on-demand." It is not a slickly produced or over-edited. I found that added to the charm. The author's voice was clear and true.
Even if you are just interested in learning more about how a successful physician thinks and works, you'll enjoy this book. I know I'll be a better patient for reading it and I'm sure the care I receive will improve as a result.
