Through Simple Caring, You Can Help Others Through Their Pain And Illness

Today on Hempire our host is joined by William S. Eidelman, MD. William’s medical education began when he was a child. His late great father was a professor of psychiatry at St. Louis University School Of Medicine. He was the only non-Freudian in the department of psychiatry for 25+ years. William learned from his father that through simple caring, they could help others through their pain and illness, sometimes.

He showed him his understanding that everyone in medicine has a lot to learn, that no one really knows all the answers. Doctor’s do the best they can, which was sometimes successful and often not. So this was his attitude when he started medical school. Once there, it seemed like something was missing from the medical program, but William couldn’t say quite what it was at the time. It seemed like they were going in the wrong direction in several basic ways. Now he realizes that there were several topics missing or neglected.
