National Physicians’ Day

National Physicians Day


 
Four special moments from the Pacific Spirit Park, Vancouver today on our National Physicians Day here in Canada, a day for me to say thank you to all of my amazing colleagues who have worked so hard this past difficult year together with all of our frontline heroes. I am in awe of them all.

National Physicians’ Day


 
Retired now for 10 years I couldn’t be more proud of all my physician colleagues on this National Physicians’ Day. The little statue of Hippocrates in my studio with the Hippocratic Oath behind him reminds me everyday of his first aphorism “vita brevis, ars longa”“life is short but the art is long”. As the “vita” gets ever more “brevis” I thank and honor them all for their life-long compassion, dedication and evermore remarkable skills.

Quoting from my “about” page:

“The art of medicine has three factors said Hippocrates… “the disease, the patient, the physician..”. a relationship that is as true today as it was over two millennia ago.”
