Excerpt from The Pennsylvania Medical Journal, Vol. 41: Representing the Transactions of the Medical Society of the State of Pennsylvania at Its Annual Session, Held at Harrisburg, September, 1911
I know doctors by the score that have reputations for being good at a horse trade, who would rather spend their evenings in a club or drug store than spend it with their conferees socially and profitably aid ing one another. This class of practition ers care about as much for diagnoses of their cases as they do about the religious belief of their patients. The postgraduate course will bring men closer together than any other known plan and, once you suc oecd in having the profession in the habit of getting together, you have solved the problem. A lazy doctor is an abomination in the eyes of the Lord, and by the world is soon thrown in the discard. These are the kind that are always telling you of the overcrowding of the profession. It is over crowded by their kind of doctors who will not study, but are relying on the medical detail man, and what the professors told them a decade ago. And they, poor souls, are now engaged in writing for certain medical journals, boosting half-baked and untried remedies.
