The Incredible Progress in Medicine

Posted in #medical school, #medicaltraining by drnic on December 4, 2015

Looking back at the history of medicine is fascinating (Victorian Medicine – from Fluke to Theory). Medicine was a combination of chance and quackery but over the course of the the last century has made incredible leaps. Science became an integral and training more formalized and increasingly specialized.

From Macbeth-like preparations of arsenic, iron or phosphorous to white coats and x-rays, the Victorian era witnessed a medical revolution

It is worth pausing and looking back to see the progress to date….likely small steps as we move forward at an incredible and accelerating pace this century
