Medicine is both a science and an art. As doctors we deal with human lives, and therefore one needs to demonstrate utmost commitment. Medicine is changing very dramatically. You are living through a revolution, and it is blurring the boundaries between physical, digital and biological spheres. We are actually living through a technological revolution and this will change how we practice medicine. But as we go and have technology coming into medicine it’s important for us to remember that we don’t forget the human touch.”
