” Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity”– Hippocrates
These popular words were delivered by Hippocrates, the great Greek physician. These words clearly show how much value is the field of medicine for people and that is why the majority of children claims that they want to become a doctor when we ask them what their ambition is. The success of a doctor is accomplished, when he/she earns the trust of the people. There is no big achievement other than that. Yes, awards and achievements also prove worth but are not valuable than people’s trust and belief.
