It's a question I get asked on a fairly regular basis:
What makes a good medic?
In my simple mind, it's a simple answer.
Here's the test:
Would I be happy with you treating a member of my family?
If the answer's no, then in my eyes, you've some work to do.
If the answer's yes, then in my eyes, you're a good medic.
The test works when I look at myself in the mirror and check on how I treat my patients too.
