To Be a Great Physician, You Must Understand the Whole Story – Medscape – March 26, 2007.
A “great” physician understands the whole story
Because only then can you make consistent diagnoses
- Each patient = a story, with
- their diseases
- their new problem
- their social situation
- their beliefs
- excellent communication skills
- gather the history in appropriate depth
- perform a targeted physical examination based on the historical clues
- order the correct diagnostic tests
- interpret them in the context of the history and physical exam
- then construct that patient's story
- Make the correct diagnosis or diagnoses
- Describe the patient's context
- Who is this patient?
- What are her/his goals?
- How might her/his personal situation impact our treatment options?
- Sir William Osler
- "The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease."
- The great physician understands the patient and the context of that patient's illness
- Take Osler's challenge. Be a great physician
- Understand the full story
- Make correct diagnoses
- Consult the patient in designing the treatment plans that best fit that patient
- Follow the results with consistency and compassion
You will then provide the highest quality medical care + be a physician role model
