THE MEDICAL CAREER by Harvey Cushing


Email this review


A collection of Dr. Cushing's addresses and papers which makes good reading for the layman as well as the medical man. He covers a wide field, -- medical history, pioneer medical schools in America, outstanding personalities, science and art in medicine, careers in medicine for the graduate, the doctor's function from past to present day, the specialist versus the general practitioner. His is a heartening point of view for the broader aspects of medicine, understanding and humane, and his biographical sketches of the men included are sympathetic and warmly appreciative. There is good writing and many a glimpse of Cushing's own widely interesting character.
