Most reports of the Government state that the main complaints presented by patients are related to the lack of sensibility of doctors towards the patients, lack of politeness, communication and information of patients.
We, as Medical Students and future Physicians, should stand up for a more humane medical pratice, playing an active role on promoting the lack of this in our Medical Curricula and correcting today’s mistakes.
Training those who will be tomorrow’s doctors is essential for the perpetuation of an effective medicine, sustainable and dignified.
