|« Testing||A Despised Theory »|
I've oftened wondered about the practicality of having a full time practice, in addition to the writing and the research. Very few major physician authors continue to practice, perhaps out of a fear of possible greater legal exposure, or the lack of time, or maybe they just never really enjoyed it that much. I enjoy meeting people and especially have liked working with and teaching the new doctor preceptors that have been a constant part of the clinic this year. Most of the naturopaths that I personally admire are practitioners, not researchers or authors.
William Osler put this funny relationship into proper perspective when he wrote:
"He who studies medicine without books sails an uncharted sea, but he who studies medicine without patients does not go to sea at all."
