Hippocrates examining a child, a painting by Robert Thom, 1950’s.

This is an Amazing TED lecture : I wish I thought of preparing such lecture before I retired. During my career as an educator in the field of medicine, I have tried to teach this “ritual” to my students with variable but minimal success. I consider myself a failure . Just as I consider myself failed in my mission of encouraging breast feeding.                                                                                                     Dr. Timur Sumer


The Doctor exhibited 1891 Sir Luke Fildes 1843-1927 Presented by Sir Henry Tate 1894
