Medical doctors are physicians first, and scientists second. The advanced state of modern medicine has been made possible only by the hard work of our always inquisitive forefathers. It is our turn to carry on this very important and ancient tradition of intellectual curiosity, discovery, and inventiveness in medicine. There is no place for complacency in medical thought. It is necessary to keep one’s eyes, ears, and mind open to the never-ending river of questions generated by today’s practice of the healing arts.
