Written by a father, a cardiothoracic surgeon to his son, who is also  a cardiothoracic surgeon……………

“The practice of medicine should be to provide relief and comfort, if possible, to the sick; to ease the anguish of the dying; to support those left behind in times of sorrow; to work happily and comfortably with your associates and colleagues; to teach those who come after you; to always be an avid student, even when you are a teacher; and to contribute to society in a myriad of civic and cultural ways. The pursuit of medicine with all its problems today is still a  noble  profession and a marvelous way to spend a lifetime.”
 W.Gerald Rainer (1979)
