    5 inspirational medical quotes for doctors

    Everyone, even doctors, need inspiration sometimes.

    Doctors hold a respected position within the community. In your role, everything you do matters. If you are feeling the need to be inspired, read on to find some words of wisdom. Perhaps these famous medical quotes will remind you why you choose to study medicine in the first place.

    Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, there is also a love of Humanity. ~Hippocrates

    When talking about inspiration, we can’t go past the father of modern medicine. People become doctors, not only out of an interest in medicine and health, but also a deep respect for human life and an innate desire to be of service to people. When the job is feeling thankless, it is nice to be reminded of why you are doing what you do.


    Medicines heal doubts as well as diseases. ~Karl Marx

    Each new patient brings with them a new story and a new set of problems. Following from the quote above, doctors are in a unique position to not only treat illness and disease, but to reassure their patients about their treatment and long-term prognosis. Words are powerful, and when used for good, can have a lasting positive influence.


    The physician should not treat the disease but the patient who is suffering from it.~ Maimonides

    A medieval Jewish philosopher and one of the greatest Torah scholars and physicians of the Middle Ages, Maimonides is reminding doctors to view their patients in a holistic way.


    In nothing do men more nearly approach the gods than in giving health to men. ~Cicero

    In the time of Cicero, when we did not have the knowledge that we have today, people who were able to ‘bring someone back from the dead’ were considered to have magical powers and ‘otherworld’ abilities. Today, they are known as doctors.


    The life so short, the craft so long to learn. ~Hippocrates

    Your vocation was, and still is, one of the hardest jobs to learn and do. In order to master any branch of medicine you need to possess many excellent traits – intelligence, care, precision, devotion, patience, versatility – the list goes on. If you are a doctor, you will have most, if not all, of these traits. Time to give yourself a pat on the back.
