Job description

From before the moment of our first breath we are on the path to our last, our hearts beats a finite number. As physicians we are charged with preventing disease, curing disease, restoring patients to health. Our training makes anything less seem a failure. Yet, life is such that disease and death are inevitable.

For those who practice medicine a worthy goal is also alleviation of suffering. In doing so disease does not always have to be eradicated to make and keep a person whole.
