Welcome back to all the 2nd years that had too long of a summer and a big welcome to our new Class of 2020. I think it’s important to start the school year off remembering that medicine is about the people and not the science. A perfect example of this comes from my classmate’s favourite sculpture the Pieta by Michelangelo. In these last few weeks we have been covering a baby’s growth and development from birth to adolescence. With all of the science clouding our vision it is imperative that we not let the real focus of this population get dismissed; the love of a parent for their child. It is a beautiful bond and must be respected as such. I hope everyone continues to embrace the truth of science but to respect the power of human connection.
