Summary

  • Clinician as a teacher of life experiences: my narratives

    Early life experience has a strong influence not only in my decision to become a physician but it is also a major determinant of my professional behavior. As a private practitioner in an urban African city, my family physician had a unique ability of attracting a waiting room full of patients. At the expense of their comfort, dozens of patients would rather have him attend to their needs than seeing another physician who might possess a better academic qualification.

    He served as a role model for me in the cultivation of attributes that I consider necessary for an effective clinical practice: empathy, patience, listening skills, cultural regards, and setting boundary. He spends quality time with every patient, treating them with compassion, respect and dignity. He worked very hard but was full of fun, making every minute spent in the waiting room worthwhile. He exudes a powerful aura that made me feel he was more than just a physician he could easily passed for an Uncle. In regular conversation, my daddy would refer to him as a friend many more times than calling him a doctor.

    His attitude to patient care epitomized humanism as a fundamental ingredient of clinical effectiveness, not surprisingly all his 3 children became physicians, taking over his job after his death. In the course of my medical training, I easily identified the physicians in the mode of my family doctor. They are result-oriented and are exceptionally successful in their chosen career. I have grown over the years to share in the same professional values. I see each patient as an opportunity to sow a seed, a seed of life that only germinates with provision of empathy and altruism. I see all of their parents as partners, I listen to them in order to gain insight of their knowledge (or misunderstanding), synthesize the information to reach a diagnosis, and consciously empower them with skills to tackle the future encounter.
