Clinical Years – Acting the Part

“Medicine is showbiz”

Terrible as it sounds, there is some truth in it. The point my professor was trying to make was: It is not enough to be nice. It is more important to act nice. It is easy to ignore or act briskly with a patient when ten tasks await you. You have to actually show that you care about the patient and make it obvious to the patient, the patient’s family, nurses and your colleagues. This does not mean that we have to be hypocritical, but that it is important to both be nice and act nice.
