Memories of Dr E Symes-Thompson, a Follower of St Luke

    Article metrics


    THE life of every physician who has attained and held for many years an acknowledged place in his profession necessarily includes in its scope something beyond his daily medical work. Some, like Sir S. Wilks and Gairdner in this country and Trousseu and Charcot in France, have left behind them a large addition to medical science, although now, with increased knowledge and specialisation, the clinician leaves a large part of the scientific field to others. Some, like Sir A. Clark, have been great teachers and public leaders in medicine; and others, again, without much of public recognition, have brought a detached and philosophic mind to bear on the problems of life and disease—and their teachings have exerted profound influence.
