Medicine Science and Dreams: The Making of Physician-Scientists

Gamow, guppies, and the search for GOD

Publication ,  Chapter
Pisetsky, DS
January 1, 2011

The term physician-scientist is one of those compound words that have been created to unite disparate elements. Our language has others: student-athlete, warrior-statesman, and player-coach. The hyphen is a convenient way to keep the words together, but the hyphen cannot obscure the inherent contradictions that fight within. At that core, physicians and scientists (just like scholars and athletes) are worlds apart. Becoming a physician-scientist demands a union that can take years to forge and is often tenuous and unnerving.
