In 1927, Francis Peabody, a professor at Harvard Medical School, famously noted in The Journal of the American Medical Association.
“The treatment of a disease may be entirely impersonal; the care of a patient must be completely personal. The significance of the intimate personal relationship between physician and patient cannot be too strongly emphasized, for in an extraordinarily large number of cases both diagnosis and treatment are directly dependent on it.”
"One of the essential qualities of the clinician is interest in humanity, for the secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient”.
Since it was published, it has become part of medical school curriculum and is said to be as valid today as it was at the time he first presented it.
The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.” ― Socrates
