The medical profession is one of the most noble, humane and necessary occupations in the world. The doctor is a person who takes responsibility for human life. So, what values and attributes should a man choosing a medical profession have?
Empathy: The physician must love and care for people. He can have a great stock of knowledge, be ready for the most difficult situations. However, the patient focuses not only on professionalism, but on a purely humane and personal attributes of a doctor. Perhaps, in some cases, the humane quality of a doctor to a patient is more important than professional skills.
The doctor also must have such strong-willed qualities as patience, mercy and compassion, he should strive to understand the problems of patients. These qualities should be brought up from the first year of study.
One more important quality of a doctor is curiosity. The physician should broaden his horizons of knowledge and medical practice all the time, expand these horizons to apply modern methods of treatment.
A real example to follow is the Russian pediatrician Leonid Roshal. In our country this person was recognized as a luminary of native medicine. His name is known all over the world. Together with his team, he helps all children who have suffered from terrorism, technological disasters and military conflicts.
Even while training Roshal demonstrated such qualities as love for learning and work, brilliant mind, magical hands. It was clear that he made the right choice in his life.
Leonid Roshal is the head of the World Association for Disaster and Emergency Medicine. In addition, since 2003 the doctor is a permanent head of the Moscow clinic of pediatric surgery and traumatology. Nowadays, the clinic of Leonid Roshal provides highly qualified assistance to all little patients in need absolutely free. Roshal became known as the children's doctor of the world.
Among us there are a lot of doctors who do not deal with the active public work and their names are practically unknown. But sensitivity and attention they earned are the trust and respect of patients. The president of Russia, Vladimir Putin, constantly touches on the issue of necessity to support modern medicine and to support young doctors in their will and passion to help people in our own country and in the regions and countries where little kids are left alone facing catastrophes and wars. Humane, sensitive, financial-free, voluntary and professional qualities are to be appreciated.
Key words: empathy, professionalism, children's doctor of the world, voluntary and professional values.
