The physician, ornament of the elite

A physician counts always within the high ranks of the society to which authority and influence are ascribed. For many lay people a physician is shadowed by image of a magician who claims to have drawn from a divine source of knowledge and wisdom or have such heavenly assignment of inspiration and prophecy. People shall always ask whether their “Doctor” was naturally assigned, genetically prepared or were just a fake figure that would be expelled sooner or later.

Unique to the physician’s prerequisite is the accomplishment of an incredible triad of nobility, knowledge and wealth. Nobility is a character that confers impressions of superiority، satisfaction and abundance. It would best manifest itself in matters related to moral rewards, physical lusts and materialistic gains. The knowledge necessary for a physician is versatile and can be subject to handling. In such overwhelming topic of general knowledge several aspects may be lightly dispensed with without grave drops except those concerning people’s behavior, believes and convincing.

The third pillar in the incredible physician’s triad is the inclination toward financial resources and proprietary assets. That awareness of the role of financial stability and abundance shall positively impact the continuous knowledge and training acquisition besides fulfilling the expected and intuitive image of the successful Doctor. The financial resources would include medical support establishments, grants, intellectual property rights and medical services compensations or fees.

The physician’s paradox

the physician's paradox

When I decided to become a physician I was keen only on that title and profession that suit my ambitious character and passionate nature. As time passed over and over I am aware now that I was and had to choose a way of opposites. Such opposites may contrast extremely in real and fancy and in action and the proposals, and – at the same time – they may reflect an example of an honest and working counter mix with fine thinking and naïve reflection.

I don’t see yet the value of wearing eye glasses as some may have advised. I should not argue that my sight is as sharp as that of a teenager but really I am still can do without. Eye burns and scratching could come from time to time for some kinds of stress and I don’t like to overestimate such temporary complaints. Wearing eye glasses is sometimes fashionable or stylish but I am still stuck to my early days of fabric independence. I do not succumb to the must-study seasons and the sleepless nights but like to run, swim and shape muscles. And though I am deeply not a dress model, it can happen to become a one when the situation dictates it. By the same way, I am not such all-in-one person but when it is needed it can come to many things; interpreter, writer, poet, painter, etc.

The very serious themes of the medical care among the house corridors, noises of wheel chairs and smell of antiseptics and the different wounds could hardly capture my fancy as a streaming sailor or a floating sky diver. I believe in Shakespeare, appreciate Newton and admire Einstein. Being a qualified physician I am supposed to be a scientist too. I know I am neither hindering death nor helping it. Death is a destiny and I try to bring about a fortune of health and wisdom. But do not then wonder if I am a physician or a priest.

I am so simple that I care about every detail and decide for the one that touches my genuine defects.
