When we met for lunch, he asked — obviously unimpressed with his above listed credentials - why this student thought we'd chosen him— and then proceeded to demonstrate the answers He began by asking about my career plans, not perfunctorily, but with real interest, which did not wane when I named a field outside Internal Medicine. On our way to Fisher's, a medical resident obtained a quick "curbside consult”, and once inside. I. usually timid with professors of similar rank, yielded to temptation and asked for his thoughts on an unusual case that I had seen on an earlier rotation. Blase (one quickly feels more comfortable with this than his formal title) didn't mind. He says he's accustomed to students and residents approaching him more casually than they do other faculty members I acknowledge a consensus among my classmates that, despite our admiration of him, we feel we can ask him questions with less fear of being judged negatively than is sometimes the case. BLASE ANTHONY CARABELLO 1969 B.A. Gettysburg College 1973 M.D. Temple University, cum laude 1973-1976 Residency in Medicine Massachusetts General Hospital Harvard Medical School 1976-1978 Fellow m Cardiology Peter Bent Brigham Hospital Harvard Medical School 1978-1979 Cardiologist Peter Bent Brigham Hospital 1979-1981 Assistant Professor of Medicine University of Virginia Hospital Charlottesville 1981- Director of Diagnostic Cardiology Associate Professor of Medicine Associate Professor of Physiology Temple University School of Medicine Dr. Carabello then began to describe his feelings about teaching. He has a great sense of debt and gratitude regarding all those who taught him. the most important source of his knowledge. In turn, he believes he owes his students the best teaching possible. Thus, when Blase is "floor attending", it takes precedence over all other obligations. "Where I 'grew up'” he says, referring to his training at MGH. "they always trusted that everyone was doing their best." Blase likes to treat his own students this way. preferring to assume that mistakes are made not due to negligence but rather as an integral part of the process of learning medicine. He has also learned "to expect to meet a lot of smart people in medicine," so that he's pleased and impressed rather than threatened by the student who teaches him something new. This spirit of mutual respect is apparent when he speaks of his wife Ellen, now a freshman at TUMS. he feels their marriage is the stronger for their both being happily involved in their careers. And no. he jokes, he's not threatened, as long as 41 I his wife doesn't surpass him in his research passion, myocardial pathophysiology. Dr. Carabello, the author of an impressive list of publications and recipient of several awards and honors, does research because it's "fun, like a detective game. Don't tell my chairman." he offers, "but I'd do this for nothing!” Blase's commitment to his patients equals that to his research and teaching. Far from minding the supportive role often demanded of him in his work with cardiac patients, he enjoys it. Claiming he "could never make a living in private practice." he notes that he often spends more than an hour talking with a single patient His efforts are appreciated, my first Physical Diagnosis patient was one of Blase's, and I remember her telling me. with feigned trepidation but obvious affection, that she'd never touch another cigarette for fear of his reaction. At home, Blase does a lot more reading now that his wife is in school, but in general, he likes to keep his off- duty hours free for sports events and for working on the house that they recently bought. He is genuinely excited to be back at Temple, stating that "this part of the country is home to me." He grew up in Reading. Pennsylvania, where his father is a well-known pediatrician. He adds. "There’s something special about working with the people who first taught you." One such person is Dr. James Spann, who greatly influenced Blase's career choice when Blase worked in It is lab as a medical student. Dr Carabello, we're pleased and honored to have you back. We dedicate this, the chronicle of the beginning of our medical educations, to you. in the hope that our careers might reflect the influence of your compassionate service, creative inquiry, respect for colleagues, and ... fun. We thank you for teaching us how to take care of myocardia. and of hearts as well. 5INVOCATION Tell me. Muse, of the man of many ways. Odysseus who was driven far on hard journeys. After long struggles, and hitter death of beloved friends in the small college town of llion, he was finally accepted by the Pre-Med Committee, and recommended "Highly. We feel that he definitely might do well probably”; and not long after was invited to tread the hallowed halls of the glorious Temple Medical Academy, whose shining name is sung abroad from the pot-holed Iberian streets of Fifth and Lehigh, to the boundaries of Nicetown where the motto is "Shoot ’em up, then shoot 'em down”, over to the kingdom of Frankford to whose people no disease is unknown. And this Temple is still close enough to the high schools of Montgomery County so that the faculty may live there and ride to work on the shining Expressway. Next let me sing of the bitter trials as he made his way homeward. His battle with Cyclops, Skylla and Charybdis; the trip to Erebos: hard storms, bitter hunger; and always the honeyed voice of the Sirens calling him to abandon his great enterprise. And now, great Muse, help us find Odysseus -beyond all other men in mind, and who, beyond others, has given sacrifice to the gods - help us find him at the table of Alkinoos, king of the Phaiacians unsurpassed in the art of navigation, whose sleek vessels are strangers to no part of the far flung seas. 6PRE -MED AT TROY COLLEGE So Alkinoos arose, and addressing his guests, said: "Distinguished Lords and ladies of the Phaiacian people, we are gathered to celebrate the graduation of a stranger accomplished in all the fields revered and practiced by civilized people such as we. He has shown us his power against our best men in boxing and wrestling. Far has he hurled the arcing discus, steady his hand with the shining scalpel: cunning and street wise is he in eliciting the essential history; deep reaching, a sorcerer, in plying the wondrous medications against all manner of disease; and. above all skill, his great spirit glows to soothe the wounded spirit of the sick, and make them love him as a healer. Here we shall eat of the sweet meat, drink the deep wine as is fit at the celebration of Graduation; and our honored guest will tell the tale of how he came to this place and time. Then we will give him conveyance to Ithaka, his home, as is the wont of Phaiacians, who give aid unquestioned to any traveler. Our sleek vessels cross the waters without helmsmen or navigator, knowing the wills and purpose of their journey, as if hy divine inspiration." So spake Alkinoos, and resourceful Odysseus arose, saying "So shall it be, and I shall tell you the story without omission, starting at the beginning. Eight years past did I first set eyes upon the college called Troy with my ten ships of Ithakan men all raised from their mother's laps to speed and strength. There did we meet the parties from Mykeno; the troops of fair haired Menelaos; all the numbers of the hard-greaved Achaians come to fight for Helen, whose skin is golden, like a wheat field in the prairie, and in whom reside learning, truth, the opportunity for goodly advancement, and above all, the chance of getting to Med School. Hot were we in spirit, ready for easy victory. None prepared for years of bitter struggle, wrenching loss of dear friends whose lifeblood stained the hanging dust. Inconclusive was our battle, in the balance back and forth, our armies evenly matched. Sometimes with easy A's did we prevail in Biologos, Psychologos I and II, Art History and Frisbee 101, but then in bitter onslaught, back to the walls of our beached vessels did the Trojans oppress us. stopping the mouths of beloved companions with heavy death by Physical Kemistry, Organic Kemistry. ugly Fysiks, while all around by infinitesimal decrements were our men wasted by that C-grade-giving slayer Differential Kalkulus. Until finally, after three years in the bitter struggle and a 3.0 average, in close counsel with the leaders of all the Greeks, did I, Odysseus, propose this strategem. No more in open onslaught would we contend with the shining armored Trojans. Rather, a hollow horse would we prepare, finely wrought with gold burnished flanks, amethyst bedecked, and with six legs. Set out was the hollow horse with diverse distractions. Interests did we espouse in Islam, The Applicant' 81) Toupee: To cover receding hairline squired through repeated applications over several years. 2) Neatly-Knotted Tie indicates superior manual dexterity. Portends well for surgical career. 3) Soft, Sensitive, Well- Manicured Hands: points to obsession with cleanliness, sterility, and vigorous palpation. 4) Reading Glosses: necessary from years of reading small print of MCAT preparatory course material. 5) Sincere, Compassionate Smile: means that '.are for others, especially those who sit on admissions committee, is top priority. 6) Letter of Recommendation: from the ongressmar. who his butcher's babysitter's uncle the Chiropractor met at a party once. 7) New Suit: first one bought since Bar Mit vah. 8) Sensible Shoes, indicates disinterest with things fashionable modern, or materialistic and readiness to sacrifice one’s life for the care of the infirm, so help him God. 9) Wedding Ring: signifies stability, loyalty, and, above all a source of income for loan repayment (Marriage will dissolve just prior to Pathology boards. Wife will sue for loss of potential income, and win). 10) Ivy League Insignia: to impress unwary interviewer who just may overlook the predominance of "Arts and Crafts” and Phys. Ed. courses on the transcript from Onondaga State Penal Colony. (Tie borrowed from cousin Irv, the Orthodontist). 11) Empty Pockets: needed to qualify for appropr ,ite financial aid. 12) New England Journal: next week’s copy, in ase he should desire meaningful conversation with TUH Medical Housestaff. 13) Wallet: Contents a) Picture of Mom bl Picture of the President c) Picture of the Pope (just in case) d) Picture of Mom with President and the Pope e) Bov Scout Membership Card f) Elan Membership Card g) Red Cross Certificate for donation of 1.658 pints of blood h) Prescription for FeS04 325 mg TID i) Registration for the 280Z he gets when he gets in 14) Can of Mace: given by Mom just for TUMS interview. Chinese pottery, glistening tales we fabricated of backgrounds in ghettos and chicken coops, far flung adventures in clinics (not Bordellos) in Mexico, Kibbutzim, auto mechanic workshops. theatre productions, sponsored wine drinking contests ("Thus the 2.1 average in the Sophomore year”) for the March of Dimes, research projects; and with many other glittering paraphernalia was the horse furnished, hoping that its appearance would so befuddle the admissions committees that they would grant us interviews, and we would finally come through the gates of the citadel to sack it from within. For long days did the Trojans debate over our horse, as we lay breathless within. Some said that it should be burned as an offering to the gods in gratitude for victory since the rest of the tall ships (or so they thought) had sailed off. Some thought that such a tawdry tinselled artifact should be pushed over the cliff since the stench of its smoke might offend the nostrils of the gods. But by close margin, after long discussion, they decided thus, that they would bring the horse into the city at least temporarily, to study it more closely. But one night was all we needed. As soon as the interview was scheduled we sallied forth from the hollow beast, opening the gates to all our friends who had returned. Fast work did we make of the city appearing first in rented suits, then, newly shaven with barbered locks, always with a glistening smile on our lips we feigned interest in whether embryology followed physiology. advocating grades, advocating no grades, and "yes. Harvard and Stanford interviews went well but given the chance I would prefer to come here over God's own medical academy". And soon did I and my companions receive note from the Temple school inviting us to attend, and I did accept three times by mail and four times by telephono, each time my application being misplaced by the Hydra-like bureaucracy that rules in that place. And indeed my friends and I did think we were at last in clover - foolish mind that sees the end. but not the way to it — that we were all but home in Ithaka already. And extravagantly did we plunder the riches of Troy, it being our senior year. Daylong on the ski slopes and at softball practice; by night catching movies and drinking the cool beer in the world-famed bars of that town; cavorting with the deep-loined people of that place and filling to the decks our hollow vessels with the spoils of victory for our return to Ithaka. So we set sail with a fresh breeze following expecting very soon to set eyes on our families again.Faces and FriendsKWCAi ALUMNI OTOC UNlVE!?$JTr SCHOOL OF MfOlOMF WJUIMA AO, H.

In his court many nobles gaily sing the livelong day pretty poems praising the guts and bones and sinews of the body. First in the morning would the microscopic Phillipides hold sway: "Repeat after me. 'first is the axis cylinder, then comes the neurilemma between the Nodes of Ranvier. then neurilemma nucleus then the endoneurium, then the neuriplexus network of the neurolemma, then the perineurium with its moderately dense fibrous connective tissue sheath, and then comes the cctoneurium'." Next came Paavolides whose words spun so fast that Kronos the time keeper who never sleeps would put his finger to the hands of the clock to stop them and make limo for all her words. Next we would all join hands and skip in a circle "LI. 2, 3 for the duodenum And just the same for the renals But ribs 10, 11, 12 for the splenum." Next, at lunch, the kindly Orolitov and Spratt of the gaudy breeches would help us in our games, and tell us good jokes. Afternoons we spent in the delicate fragrance of the embalming fluid trying to discover the resemblance between our cadaver and the instruction videotape. And all the while, both day and night, our efforts were guided by the great Carsonian Schneck, princely in knowledge, tireless in giving it, and unequalled in the art of making the murky seem clear and light. 24 Anatomy Robert Troyer.

Dr. Marvin Sodicoff Dr. Mark Black Dr. Carson SchneckAnd in truth, after the long struggle in Troy we were not discontented with our childlike pursuits in Anatomy. If this was not home, it was the next best thing, and our minds discovered a new, unexplored continent of form underlying the unending variety of human appearances, every little finger with its ulnar innervation, every last tongue with circumvalate and filiform papillae. Finally we were ready to sail onward, and the kindly king gave me a bag, tied with a slim thread, and told me that in it were all the winds which I might need for straight sailing home, and that all that my men and I need do was keep the day-long regimen, and skip rope diligently, and revere as holy our lecturers, and not question anything they said, and wash behind our ears. and write to Mummy and Daddy at least twice a week and in that way we would come home quickly. So we set sail and for fourteen days with fair winds following, sped across Poseidon's water until at last we saw the cliffs of lihaka in the distance. It was about the time of Thanksgiving, and I was weary from unending days and nights 3t the helm, (for Troyophones' words had inspired me to pursue a mastery of his books like a young dog which gambols tireless, following the scent of a hare long gone). So I went down among the men, and tasted of the pleasures unknown to us since we had left Troy. But then I fell asleep, and my companions, who had seen the silver tied bag, talking among themselves, decided that I was hiding treasure that the king had meant for all. So they opened the bag. and immediately a hugh squall blew from the South. I awoke, and seeing what they had done groaned in heavy agony, and told them the whole story. The winds grew into a foul storm, buffeting our tall ship for days until we were driven again onto the Aiolian shore. Again we entered the court. "But what are you doing here comrades? Surely you have had no problem on your way since my gift guaranteed you straight passage?” I told him our story, and begged him to give us another bag of winds. But he leapt to his feet horrified, "Oh least of living creatures, out of this islandl Hurry! With such blighted luck you must indeed be hateful to the immortals. Out before your evil fate taints us all! Out!” With these words, he sent us out of his house. So we once more took our places in the ships and set out to make our own way home. 26 Meet our cadaver.... he's a hurting buck.

Kenneth Hoober "Oh no. not the Kreb's Cycle again!" 33 Dr. Michael BrennerBIOKEMISTRY HOW TO TAKE THE BIOCHEM TEST From there, grieving still at heart, we sailed further along, and reached the country of the lawless outrageous Cyclops, or as we came to call them. Bioclots, known throughout all the world for their obsession with enzymes and pathways; a people without social intercourse or customs. loving only examinations and computer printout sheets. The Cyclops it was who fashioned the thunderbolt that destroyed Asclepius, God of healing. and were later exterminated by Apollo in revenge for their part in the killing. Their purpose in life is to distill the flux of living matior into an immutable symbolism of constants and equilibria. In youth these people, not outside in the leaf-sprung sunshine, but inside in the gloom, ponder the mechanisms of nature. Finally in that half light, their eyes close forever, the skin grows over them, and their inner eye. the one called by the Hindus Mariavara, which for most mortals is the seat conscience. swivels from its inner seat, pops through the skin, glaring abroad from the forehead, perfectly adapted to read the pH meter without parallax. The Bioclots' island is like a barren rock pile, without cultivation, and yet things do grow there without tending, and Zeus' own rain falls on them, as it does equally on all people who strain and struggle beneath the sky. So we went up onto the island to find out who lived there, whether savage and violent, or hospitable to strangers and with minds that are godly. Soon we came to a cave, which we inspected. All around were scattered pails of milk and cheeses, and equations laying bare the intricacies of life; subtle insighcs which when applied facilitate wonderful cures; and forms depicting the ebb and flow of countless processes. In truth although a strange people and horriole to mortal men, the Bioclots have discovered many wonders from their diggings in life's dark sub-soil. Other things did we see which then we little understood - oh hateful ignorancel - high filing cabinets stuffed with sheaths of colored paper, heavy volumes which suddenly would close, slamming their reader’s head between the pages so that the brains rattled around like a lotto number; and there were also interminable lists to be memorized of hydrolases, hydratases. dehydroxylases and reductases. Soon our Bioclot host returned, driving in a vast flock and banging shut the huge stone which covered the door. And the heart in us was stricken when we saw him. a monstrous wonder to behold, like a wooded mountain peak. I introduced our group, but already with suspicion in my heart, told him not what I was called, but said, "Honored sir. my name that I was given is 'Nobody'; my friends and I are travellers on our way through medical school. We beg you for your hospitality in the name of Zeus, who avenges any wrong toward strangers and suppliants!' 34Dr Dawn Marks"Miserable wretch" he roared, "you are in no position to parlay terms with me! My father is Poseidon, shaker of the earth, inventor of Radio Immunoassay, beloved of intermediary metabolism." And he reached down for two of my men, snatching them up, sprinkling them on some red and yellow paper, and like a gorilla studying a bunch of primroses yelled: "name all the cofactors of the Krebs Cycle arid four of the enzymes of glycolysis, and the amino acid sequence of insulin". The wretched souls made two gasps at answers before he slapped them to the ground, their brains spilling out, and ate them whole, entrails, flesh and bones. When he had finished he smacked his lips, farted loudly, and said “Yum, good food for the next twelve nights" before finally falling asleep. We were aghast at this gruesome spectacle. and the yellow fear seized my companions, but I quelled the rising nausea in me and set out to devise a plan for an escape, and this is what seemed best to me, and this is what we did. The next day our host, whose name was Plauto, rose early and drove out his flocks to the field, but not before saying "See you this evening my morsels. Tonight I shall make a feast of twenty six of you on the flames of the final examination." When he had gone, we prepared by sharpening one of the huge pencils in his cave, then hid it beneath some hides lying near. Next we prepared a beverage, taught me by Pallas Athene, goddess of wisdom, my protectress, which would fill us with craft, but when drunk by an enemy would cause soggy stupor. In it I threw elixir of caffeine, my trusty PC 26 3000K multiple retrieval forward recall pocket calculator, crystal column chromatography units, with retort stands, the pages of the biochemistry text which wore not already flushed down the toilet, and two articles on the suicide rate among physicians. Soon after the thick brew was ready, Plauto returned to the cave with his friends: Glushklots, the towering Suhadolnickox of the red beard. Markso. the subtle Schramman, and guests from more distant departments. Microbiology. Pharmacology, who wanted to taste of Plauto's famous cuisine. As soon as they had arrived we busied ourselves distributing the potage, sanguinely telling the guests "No greater honor could befall a man than to be torn apart, and consumed without any waste by a superior order of creatures such as yourselves. We long for your mangling hands and glorious death in your divine chops." But indeed the punch worked fast upon them, and not only were they soon yawning, but exclaiming how well satisfied they were, and that Plauto should keep us on as beermasters in his mirky den.

MageeSo they left, Plauto ushering them out, making sure that none of us slipped away with them. He too was contented, but not yet satisfied, and snatched up another two men. Biting off their heads with the blood still pumping from their necks and dribbling down his beard, he slapped them between two rolls of colored paper and called them "Studcntburgers". gobbling them up. Soon he was asleep and the wine gurgled up from his gullet with human meat dribbling down his chin as he snored. Galled to fury at this pitiful sight, we retrieved the pencil, staggered with it to the fire {it took four to lift it) and put the point to the flames. Soon the tip was gleaming red. and lifting it from the fire, charged at the Cyclops' eye which was now chest level. The glowing, tapered tip plunged into the globe sizzling, like the biologists' culture loop into the broth. Letting forth a terriblo cry he leapt up dragging the spike out with a huge gush of blood and vitreous. ''Help Help!" he roared, shaking the rocks "Help me! I've been attacked!" Soon his friends were once more outside the door. "What's the matter. Plauto? What is this commotion which wakes us from our heavy slumber?" "Nobody is here, Nobody has attacked me and Nobody poked my eye out!" he yelled. But Plauto's rude ways wore his undoing. For never had he introduced us to his guests, and they thought he was delirious. "Poor Plauto", we heard from the other side of the door, "he must have drunk too much of that wine, and now some monsters of conscience are attacking him in his sleep." Their words faded out into the distance. The night dragged long as Plauto rampaged around the cave hoping to snatch us with his flailing arms. When dawn came, the sheep, udders bulging, unmilked from the night before, and unfed, bleated to get out. So Plauto rolled back the stone door, and spreading his arms across the doorway to stop our escape felt the backs of the sheep as they passed. But each of my men had lashed himself beneath an animal, and I last, beneath the great black ram, sire of the flock. As soon as we were out. we untied ourselves, and drove the animals to our ships, where our comrades wept tears of joy to see us. So wo came away from that island grieving for our friends. And in truth. I shall always use some of the divine secrets which I learned in Plauto's cave, but shall never forget the horrible way I found out about them. 38 Physiology Alan R.

There the inhabitants live on a flowering food, nectar sweet; nor did they have any thought of destroying us. We sat down from the journey, ate our fill, and slept, and with the rosy-fingered dawn, awoke. Then I sent out some of the men to fetch water and they met some Lotus Eaters, who shared with them their golden food. Long unending days, bookless untroubled nights, social intercourse, unbridled hours rocking on the evening porch, sojourns with loved ones in dappled leafy shade where only bird songs interrupt the space, of all these things did they taste. And those who tasted the honey sweet fruit were unwilling to go away, but wanted to stay forever among the Lotus Eaters, and forget the way home. I myself found these men, and took them by force, back, weeping, to the ship, and put them on board, and tied them fast, and ordered the rest of my companions to take their places and dashing their oars in the foamy sea we came away from that place to the sophomore year. 46trPathology Dr. Chik-Kwan Tang Renato L.

PATHOLOGOS MIC ROB 10 LOGOS Then we saw ahead the surf pounding, dark smoke rising up from the waves and heard the roar of churning water. On the one hand was SkyUa, also called Pathologos, whose haunt was a cave half way up the black rock face. Her voice as quiet as a new born puppy, but she herself is an evil creature. She has twelve feet, and all of them wave in the air. She has many necks upon her, grown to great length, upon each a head, on one an Elfenbein, another a Baum, the She- and He- Ming, Putong and many more. Her body from the waist down is round and flat like a slide carousel, and she looks out to the north, the darkness, and the morgue. On the other side, by the lower cliff is Chary bdis, sometimes called Microbiologos, a monstrous hopper of infection. Three times a day the world's diseases she slurps down: Pseudomonas, capsular antigens. Erysipelas, gram negatives, bacteremia. And three times a day she vomits them back up: HBV Capsule and Nuclear, Antibodies, T B cell-mediated immunity and antibiotic spectra, sensitivities, and specificities. Dr. Philip Valente. . . Dr. Si-Chun MingAnd both monsters were voracious and insatiable. and both were armed with many examinations'- Charybdis with myriad charts of trivia and arbitrary cut offs, Skylla with mysterious entities never before mentioned in lecture, or covered in the handouts, or conceived of in the minds of mortal men. But better it was to sail close to the grasp of Pathologos and lose some of my crew, than to risk all of my ships in the mouth of Microbiologos. So we entered the narrow strait, and suddenly on our left, saw the maw of Charybdis open and suck down the sea, and green panic seized us as we saw in the entrails of the beast Shockmen and Cundys, Hendersons, virologists, microbiologists, sundry bacteriologists howling and clammering for our blood. And while we were looking that way. Skylla reached over and seized six of my best men. and ate them right in her doorway above us as they screamed to us and reached with their hands toward us imploring us to help. But our hollow ship shot through the strait although the pitiful sight stains my soul to this day. 52 Microbiology Dr. Gerald ShockmanDr. Toby K.

Buckley Dr. Earl E HendersonACROSS THE STREET Pharmacology We travelled on from that place to the final term of the preclinical years. Pathophysiology (called "Systoms Disease ') and Pharmacology were our twin tormentors for that time; but we were by now well versed in tricks of survival. A new exam every second Monday, and we would goof and gambol at our oars for ten days. Then on Thursday a sudden breeze of blind panic would chill our boat, and every man would set the coffee-maker on "High Power ', make fifteen provolone sandwiches. excavate his alarm clock from a heap of empty bottles, and chain himself to a chair; on his left, a crisp pile of Med Notes and Handouts, on his right, a basket for the waste, highlighted, annotated, ruminated, and assimilated. 8risk Monday mornings, the Broad Street denizens would peer from their doorways over piles of empty cans and bottles to watch us, figures scurrying past with eyes which stared back from deep pits, with tales of zombie visions to match their own. We were left frontal lobes on legs (barely functional, winded by one flight of stairs, but well could we pen the risk factors for atherosclerosis ten) prepared for one thing only, to vomit on demand hundreds of mindlessly roted facts, which teetered precariously on the minutes of our short term memories. And anything which remained after the oxam was easily expunged by the next week on the lam. But if the study jig was reflex by now, the fourth semester saw us take a momentous new step on the path to becoming Doctors. For the first time, we donned white coats and crossed Broad Street to the hospital, which for two years had been so far removed that we thought its physical proximity a bizarre coincidence. Crossing that street, we were as confused as penguins parachuted onto the Nile "Hey, Mike, ever saw an iceberg like that? and scared like lost ducks who have fled the farmyard to find a noisy indifferont world, "Hi Connie, quack, nice jacket. Whore do we go next?" We were scared by our confusion: "At 2:30 we're supposed to be on the floor . "Do we have to sit on the floor, quack? ’ "Quack, the floor is where we do our aitch and pec." And confused by our fear; "John says we're supposed to go to Erny; but Lisa says we should go back across the sweet." "Who's Erny?" "I think he's the attending." "Quack, what docs an attending do?" "He's a special kind of nurse, and waits on the patients." "I'm looking for palpable clicks exacerbated by deep inspiration." ".. .so I bouejit all the attachments for only $200.

The nurses Dr. Martin Black £_ Dr Leon Salganicoff Dr. Martin Adler 59 Dr Charles A. Papacostaswere happy for a slice of our tender flesh. "I'd like to use that chart if you get through with it this week." "Well. I was looking for, uh, hmm, where are the alcohol sponge preps?" As John leaned forward to get one to clean his tuning forks, one of his bulging pockets sent a complete set of blood cultures into a soupy pattern on the floor. Silence. I kneel down to help mop up, knocking the meds from the charge nurse's hand. Debbie bends over to retrieve them, colliding heads with Bob. who stands up quickly. But his stethoscope is still caught under the chair, so he bends down again, catching Debbie’s $40 reflex hammer in the eye. Finally, with three people, two charts, a box of needles, and four smashed bottles spread around the floor of the nurses' station, Dr. Baer shows up, "So you're the Sophomore Students. Are you ready?' We waddled into the rooms. No physician-patient contract here, sick people were asked to reveal intimacies to strangers who had absolutely nothing to do with their treatment. Blushing to the hair roots, we introduced ourselves. meticulously questioning sick patients about their history: "Did the pain shoot all the way down your left arm. or just to the elbow?" Their personal habits: "How often______? I have a colostomy bag. Doctor." "Oh yes... .1 see. .. .(what kind of a bag is that?)" Their psychiatric history: "Do you hallucinate often?" Their social history: "So you left Virginia in 1932, and smoked until 1949, but didn't find God until 1943?" Their family history: "Did your Aunt die from the Cancer or the Stroke?" Their sexual history: "About eight times a week. Doctor, said a sixty-five year old, with a twinkle. I thoucfit of my own shrivelled libido, swinging like September's grapes on a January vine. We asked them to cough, to hold their breath, to valsalva until they were blue; to lie down, to stand, to sit, whoops! almost forgot the Romberg! "I'd like you to stand up again just one more time." We prodded and poked and peered, and tried to think of a reason why they really needed another Rectal. These would be among the most shameful of my memories, were it not for what they taught me. I learnt that before, during, and after a Doctor and a Patient, there are two people; and that professional roles are only roles. Self-effacement and a good measure of humor make one almost indestructible. I also learned what a seductive temptation is the cardinal clinical sin: Pride; a straight jacket of eyes and ears and mind; and a refuge I have often longed for. I hope that I become a Physician worthy of the patience granted me by these Patients.

Dr. CoslettWernicke and KorsakoffPEDIATRICKS The following day the Phaiacians rose late and moved slowly in the light; a short walk with words well spaced out. The leaves rustled vaguely. Odysseus, churned by grief like a sand man beneath the waves was yet renewed; pumped by the ebbage. As on the morning after a night of angry storm the sky seems blown distillate clear, and is reflected in redundant puddles trembling between ribs of wet earth; just so did Odysseus rise from his night of tears. The slow hours salve the jittery synapses, and social appetite returns. Evening draws new water of anticipation: hot deep baths leisurely, dry, naked every pore clean, astringent, scented, fresh clothes carefully chosen. First cool of night air deep in the lungs, the guests congregato in Alkinoos' vaulted hall. Once again they wero well sated at the great king's table. Billions of mitochondria were supplied with enouefi reduced hydrocarbons to fight entropy for the noxt twelve hours, freeing the mind to contemplate the ways of human being. First the blind poet, whose song could conjure all things from their first idea, to their final residue, took his seat at the centro with his lyre. He sang of Sisyphos whose cunning is famed even beyond that of Odysseus’, who thrice defied the gods and fate, clinging to the red gush of life over Thanatos’shrill whistle. Next he told of Asclepius, the god o medicine who learned his art from a centaur — half man, half beast. This Asclepius (although he was never awarded an M.D.) had power so great that he bestowed warm breath on the lips of the dead. For this violation of the order of nature Zeus struck him down with a thunderbolt. When the poet had finished his song. the guests turned to resourceful Odysseus, calling him to continue with his story. He rose slowly and said: "Lord and Lady Phaiacians. I am honored that you come again to hear my tale to the end. Yesternight I took you to the place of the dead. where yet so much was learnt of life. Your eyes shine in my graduation as Physician; but already you know it has not been an easy pathway hither. Medicine can be a glorious mistress and also a tyranical master. As the poet says: "You start out standing glad to seize her anything she sees but wind up at a keyhole down upon your knees." Our days, our deeds, are numbered. but medicine is a clock which takes eighteen hours a day to wind. While others have been tilling the earth. I have ploughed the slipping waves where the only trees arc albatross perches, bobbing. Though some medical students have grown, most have just grown older. and still we have not harvested a grain.

The skies brightened as the dead shores fell away from the stern. It took the full morning to realize that our arms were glowing from the sun's warmth, and our nostrils tingling with air, acrid with the damp of thawing earth and rising sap. It was the first day after winter, when birds and vines and animals are called from a crouching sleep by another world, stretching, tentative; long imprisoned wings fluttering among the last patches of melting snow. In this way we found the Land of Pediatricks at the Hospital of Saint Christopher's; a beautiful place, hidden among the desolate tracts of North Philadelphia. This hospital is famed abroad as the ground which nurtured Nelson's Text of Pediatric Medicine. Academic excellence there is not the pretext for compromised care. At the centre arc nurses unequalled in ministration and love beyond the call of duty. Many great clinicians inhabit that place, some already known to us from Erebos. Others were new encounters: Wang-Lee and Chin of the diminutive stature, but immense authority; Hetznecker and Mcllhenny, Doctors of the Soul; Weintraub, surgeon, quicksilver hands and judgement, saver of children and savager of residents. Lischncr the imrnunoaccomplished was there, tireless teacher; Meg Fisher of Bugs; Widzer, Master, G.I., deft Pileggi; designer DiGeorge of genes; and all this Land, day and night. was bathed in the bright unfailing light of children, untamed and untarnished by the corrosions of life, who immediately saw in our clumsy adult armor, every chink and flaw: "If you're a Doctor, how come you don't know about my medicine?" "Does it hurt to have spots like you?" "You've got butter on your shirt." and of course, the fifth heart sound: "Waaaaaa. .. Little children under the covers, children behind the doors. Dopplers, monitors, cathode-ray oscilloscopes between the teddy bears, posters, pictures, paraphernalia, in wild playroom profusion. Kids pushed along the halls on chariot I.V. poles; kids at the nurses' station; children with ocean deep neurological deficits succored with tenacity which gives no thought to effort or expenditure; kids with eyes tired of pain, suffering the indignities of modern medicine with the unquestioning acceptance of life's ancient, self-purposing protoplasm. Children showed us time unfolding in crisp new-turned furrows. They showed us life burgeoning infinite from possibility's infinite infinity. The children raised us from our knees and showed us the way onward on our journey. (Above) Dr. Chin. (Below) Dr. Wimmer. 110Harry and his dancing Baers.

M D Benjamin Price, M.DOBSTETRICOS GYN£COl6g6s Our time with the children reminded me again of Penelope, alone in Ithaka. the woman who was the iron peg for the mortise of my soul. We sailed on seven days and six nights together, coming at last to the sheer citadel Gynecos. Obstetricos. of the Laistrygones. There, a cannibal people tend by day their herds, by night, flocks of silvery sheep, and the courses of night and day run close together in the Delivery Room, We entered between sheer cliffs the kingdom, and three of my men went ashore to determine what manner of people lived there. Soon, by a well, they encountered one Artahie, a first year resident, the powerful daughter of the king Rajanixes. and asked of her who might be the prince of that fertile land, and how they might procure supplies for the onward journey. She with sweet words did welcome them. with invitations to the palace, high roofed, upon the hill. But when they entered the glorious house their hearts were filled with horror as they encountered a woman tall as a mountain peak. She, Rajanina, a second year resident did call Rajanixes, who coming from a conference, devised plans for dismal death against my companions. He snatched one of them up and immediately prepared him for dinner. When they saw this, the other two fled in terror. Seeing that he had been cheated of two thirds of his feast, Rajanixes flew into a rage at Rajanina: "Daughter and wife of mine, on whom I have lavished such effort to teach you in the ways of doctrine and dogma, do you not realize that when there are two such, many more tender morsels cannot be far off? How come you brought only these, and now you have let go the two whom we could torture to find where the rest are hiding?" And he rushed upon her to let her feel the force of his hard fists. But she, well-versed in the down-hill principle, ducked his blows and said: "My lord, forgive me, I would never have let them go had I not seen those two first year residents making faces behind your back as you spoke." And as he rose to pummel the innocent interns, she added, "And surely I was further distracted by hearing your great voice and beholding your great stature as you spoke. And indeed, my Lord, all this was planned so that we could follow them to their hide-out. Back at the ship, hardly prepared were we for the Laistrygonian hordes as they descended upon us with pessaries and dilators reeling our befuddled brains. Whap!

Some, seeking an attending's approval, took refuge at the nurses' station, hiding behind charts, while others loudly cried, "Don't look at me. I’m on Surgery!” As the sun declined in the west, they mounted the final onslaught: Eighty warped questions straight from the fantasy of Rajamxes without recourse or recall. Calling my battered and bleeding men to their places in the black hulled vessel, I cut with my sharp sword the cable which moored us. Praying the great gods to give them strength, the men churned the waiting water, and we sped away from the hooting throng.

After the wooden years, life on the wards joyed our souls like breezed May flags. Our bodies with unsuspected craft lanced the black hulled vessel beneath the sky amid sunlit spray, while the sea was a jade green whose depth is felt, but not seen. We came to an island with a great house among the trees. Before, as I had prayed, my protectress, Pallas Athene, had appeared to me and warned me that this place was the abode of Circe, dread goddess who talks with mortals, sorceress and surgeress, with pale blue eyes dazzling in dark olive skin. First, I was told, she would greet us, offer us shelter, then feast us, but with drugged food, then she would cast a spell which would turn us into beasts. As soon as she did this. I was to draw the sharp sword from my side, and rush toward her, as if to kill hor and beat her about the head with a "Peanuts” book, and hang from the ceiling and moon her. and play her my "Talking Heads” records; and tell her that I was going into psychiatry, then to say "You think you're tough. But I'm insane.” Then, Pallas told me, would Circe be afraid, and invite me to go to bed with her. and that I should not refuse, but insist first that she should swear a great oath to the gods not to harm me or the men. 3. V So we beached the ships, and went towards the high chimneys whose smoke edged tentatively in the morning. When we had passed the gates we heard the screams of the beasts who were under Circe’s spell. A dark light of panic shone on all of us then, but I made the men laugh by practicing my mooning. Circe approached us, a sharp beauty shimmering, and, when we had introduced ourselves, immediately called her servants, who brought tender lamb, roasted pig. and spiked punch to seduce our gullible souls. After we had satisfied our hunger, she arose with eyes aflame and said: Wallace P. Ritchie, Jr,, M.D.. Ph.D. Chairperson Francis Au. M D. Earl Browne. Jr..

Dr. Wallace Ritchie 69 Dr. Francis Au (top left) and Dr. Bruce Derrick {bottom left)“Motley wanderers of the dithering ways and half-assed conclusion learn now of achievements, deeds, and resolution. I speak of Surgery where healing steel cuts out the ill. The line is drawn, the cut is deep and with hard will, cautery, ligation, for good exposure: hard retraction; no paltry, high pitched eunuch dandruff picknose scratching. We see the goal and win it, make new life-sending the sick flesh to pathology with the knife." Then, seizing a trochar, she rushed at me saying “Go to your sty now and lie with your other friends there.” But I gave no ground, and did everything as instructed, and grabbed my giant plastic reproduction of Andy Warhol’s "Banana Skin.” and that really terrified her. She could not understand how I had resisted her powerful spell, and invited me to her chamber. But I refused until I had negotiated a mighty oath from her. and she had promised to protect us and do us no harm. So we became her guests, and came well to love her artful ways. She taught us of suturing, the many ties intricate, the one handed square knot, left and right, the surgeon's knot, the many threads and needles, the fine discrimination of tissue planes, and gentle dissection, the subtle palpation of the abdomen, nasogastric tubes, chest tubes, sumps, drains. A-lines, CVP's and Swan Ganzes. She showed us the beauty of living anatomy, the healing power of the scalpel. Her hands were stream water on a sunbaked rock, and as powerful as a boulder in the stream. Hers the decision — careful, unhurried, sudden; confidence tempered with fear - to make the incision.

Grosh and Hall (above left); Dr. Vincent Lauby (below left).In the evening, Circe would like to watch the poor wretched animals, once voyagers like ourselves who had been less fortunate than we in eluding her spells. Down in the pigsties they would clamour from 5 a.m. when they would start their "pre pre-rounds” to late in the night. All manner of surgeons were there, Generalists, also called "bowelists"; Plastics, of the platinum fleece; Orthopedists of the golden jock; Cardiothoracic Surgeons of the niddering mentality. Their favorite time of day was mid morning, the 'feeding time', when Circe would throw them pieces of meat, and they would each take up his favorite instrument in his hoof and anastomose or plast or plex or suture or excise or cauterize of splenectimizc until there was nothing but a seething foaming mass of trotters and tusks and meat and screams of "Off my case", "One hernia is worth two appendectomies!'', "My turn to close"; "You sutured my tail in the wound!" "Reglove, redress, retie!” and "Shut up you old Gomer, I just want to know if you're diabetic." Circe would laugh until the tears rolled down her glorious cheeks at this spectacle, but we had less stomach for these changelings, once like us. And so one night I begged the fair goddess clasping her round the knees on our bed, to help us on our way. "Resourceful Odysseus always with a part of yourself held back, and scheming. I will do as you ask in accordance with my oath. But you will know hours of your life when you will wish for anything to be back here. Next you must travel to the land of Psychiatry, and after that to Erebos, place of the dead, also called Med I." With the stomach rising to my throat. I heard her description of that place and the instructions how I was to survive in it. So the next morning with the hollow feeling of any man before leaving the familiar for unknown danger, I ordered the men to make ready to sail. 72 (Top) Dr. Jacob Kolff, (below) Dr. William LightfootOphthalmology Dr. Guy Chan 74Neurosurgery Dr. Raymond Truex William Buchheit.

M.D.PSYCHIATRY September came in the third year of our long journey, and we found ourselves to be in the magical City of Psychiatry: strange fruits hung from reflecting trees, exploding when they fell. All the fire hydrants were on a single street, and the people walking by, vanished and reappeared. The houses had dark windows, and shapes which changed as one entered in: some which pigsties seemed, hid gilt rooms; others looked like mansions, but as one crossed the threshold were swallowed into a shoe box, dark and small. In the East and West, behind high walls, were the patients' houses, with gables and jumbled lots, rusted out cars on their bellies, and sodden twisted mattresses. From strange angles I saw my own buildings reflected there. Somewhere in the sky the sun could not be seen but shot shards of light from the waste of broken glass. One noon I came from behind those walls to eat my lunch. Broad Street, my sea home for so long, floated shimmering among the desolate tracts of North Philadelphia. On the sidewalk, Koreans hawked perfect oranges "forty sens cash, dolla fo' tree", and shoulder bags "Made in Taiwan". Feasting black smoke of sheesh-kebabs curled into the nostrils through the sun; from Dox Truck, a sad smell of cold cakes, from Steve and Fly's, sweet sizzling grease, and people pouring happy hoagie bearing from Moffin's, like potatoes from a bag. Eight Chinese in one concession stand served "Star flied lice wit swee' sow soss, $1.80." White stockingod nurses, doctors like crustaceans huddled, probosci waving, tentative; 8lacks, Hispanics. Caucs, Orientals, spun and mingled round the hospital. ".... unusual case of Prinzmetal's... ." . . .two cases of High Life . . . .'Oui no French' " ". .. .can't get it on .. ."

". .. .hey man, Moses took us to the promised land once". In the street, flakes of gold light were shed upon the planet's fluxing children and upon a warm wall I sat to watch them as by a babbling stream in summer season, and softly slipped upon me the silk sleeve of sleep. I dreamt that I was trying to cross a lake, encouraged by my father who was five years old. He had a switch with which he lopped the heads of goldenrods "Come on, son, I get younger every day, and you get a day older." A boat was there, but the oars did not fit their locks. "I only beat my father as far as that tree," said my father. Psychiatry 82Tom adjusts Dr. Stern's antenna. Anthony Panzetta. M.D. Chairperson Michael Ascher. Ph.D. John Ball. Ph.D. Philip Band.

"I need one with two heads to complete the circle," she said. Then my father was with my mother on the far bank, and they left. I was in a town, which I knew well. I was lost, no one could understand me. Someone was dying. I needed to get to the hospital, I found the train, it pulled out backwards. When I got to Temple. I went to the I.C.U. Everyone was bustling about the dying patient, I went over to see. I saw that it was me. Penelope was my nurse; she was crying; I tried to tell her that I was fine, but my bps made no sound. I left to look after my own patients. By the elevator was a cleaning lady, round, cheery, black, with musical voice, who told me about South Carolina before the Great Depression, and then said "Heal thyself, heal, Doctor, Doctor, heal thyself I" "Doctor. Doctor, Doctor!" The sun light flashed black and white on my lids. Trying to assume a position of solemn contemplation I looked up into the bright eyes and teasing smile of my friend Joe Ben, chief among all my companions.

Our hollow vessel sped all day and all night, and made the limit, which is Erny Amphitheatre. The hearts within us were stricken with dark grief for our hard paths to this point and memory of friends lost on the way. We went ashore taking the sacrifices with us. Unlooping from my neck the stethoscope which hung from it I dug a pit of a cubit in each direction. Then I took the bloods I had drawn, the green topped tubes, the red tops and purple, and poured them into the pit. Next I took tho urine samples, the vital signs of many cases, Dilantin levels, EKG strips with J point elevations and, offering a special prayer to the god of lab services that my specimens would not be lost, and that the lab techs were not on break this month, and that the computer was well supplied with good electrons; and having waited three days for the results, I took all these things and threw them into the pit. My next offering was all the accumulated knowledge of two years.

Physiology, Pharmacology and Pathology, and over all this poured the nectar of my youth spent studying while my peers had been out caressing the soft June nights. Finally I memorized pages 1534 to 45 of the Harrison's Book, and taking a sharp 14-gauge needle from my side I cut from it two hundred pages. Over them I swore that I would learn and revere as holy the first generation, the second, third, and fourth generation of Cephalosporins; and having considered the differential diagnosis of hypercalcemia, I flung them all into the foaming ditch. Meanwhile the gibbering hordes of the departed swarmed around our great sacrifice. I prayed to the gods that I would not become one of them. Many we had not seen since we left Troy. Bobby of the bright smile was now working as a stockbroker. He looked happy. Dearly beloved Paula whose eyes had prodded and dazzled me through llion College: she was now an artist in Minneapolis, and content. Terese, fluffy, the psychology major now a stenographer and rich; Jack the Jock, football captain and beer connoisseur, an insurance salesman; Nicky of the dungarees and sandals, unchanged and in a food co-op. Rixis who had never spoilt an evening on account of a final: in a pick-up with two children and working on the night shift; all. all busy and with contented smiles on their faces. There also were more recently departed friends, torn asunder by the Cyclops, snatched by Skylla. all now active and quite .... quite .... happy. And still I held them back from the offering with my glistening ophthalmoscope, as Circe had instructed, to let Teiresias the Theban drink first. Teiresias is the Great Attending, whose eyes, having seen the naked beauty of Athena had been struck blind by the immortal gods, giving him instead divine vision to see all things, past, present and future. He is the Teacher whose st3turc is recognized by all in the hospital, from janitor to department chief, inspiring by example. His manner and skill are a touchstone through the career of a physician. He is the Lorber; Lachman and Steel of Orthopedics; the glistening dome. Sol Sherry, of the Temple; the Eisenstadt, Caraballo, David Smith, Sarah Long, Truex, Banan, Bannett; ponderous knowledge flourished light as a song; William Osier. Putnam, Gray and Harvey, Galen, Hippocrates. These are great humans, synthesizing past learning and teaching it anew. And their knowledge is divine because it is infused with wisdom. And by this sign shall you know them: whether showered with Lucre on the Main Line or begrimed by thick ketotic smoke In the thankless anarchy of an urban clinic, they ply their genius with a single purpose; with the same humility, good humour, and care. They dignify alike the famous and the failures and rediscover the way of health where the wasteland of disease holds sway. Dr. Sol Sherry 92Dr. Myers, do we really have to work the last weekend of our "sub" at G-town???? Dr. Norman Learner Would you buy a used Harrison's from this man? 93 Valerie and Tom swap references.When Teiresias had drunk from the pit he stood up and addressed us so: "Odysseus, unhappy man, you seek sweet homecoming. How then are you here, nowhere that could be further from home and the hearth that glows to contented conscience? Home, the place where the human soul completes its weave through the warp and woof of instruction, home, the tapestry with strands of color but yet a whole; a point on no graph paper where trajectories stand still yet move harmonically; how is it that you are still buzzing your soul like a shred of cloth flapping on the prairie wire? And yet I think you will come home, but not easily, for the Earth Shaker. Poseidon, holds a grudge against you still for blinding his son, the Cyclops, so long ago. But even so might you come back after much suffering, if you can contain your own desire and that of your friends. Other rotations, distant journeys to residency interviews after interminable applications, forms, photos, recommendations, Boards. the Match, the Unmotch, subinternship, and round and round the renal rounds at Temple. And even when you have regained your native shores with your graduation, new ardors await you in Residency. Years alone every third night, mind honed vigilant and crafty as ever for trickery of thieves and oversight of friends. And always on the lookout for indifferent nature, hanging over your hospital like a cat over a fish bowl. And at home, still will your case be bad, for Penelope, your wife, is beset by suitors plying her for her hand. She has promised to choose one of their mothy heads when she has finished her glorious tapestry. Every night she unweaves what she made that day and thereby artfully resists their blandishments. But this love for you is in a frozen posture of disuse, and what you are. apart from your journeys. your tricks and your achievements, grows faint to her memory; as it does to your own. You will be hard pressed to fight off these parasites that beset the true target and focus of your soul For the first time, Odysseus faltered in his long tale; stooped his face in the hissing silence of candles. "Forgive me lords and ladies of ihe Phaiacians, honored guests of my lord Alkinoos at this my graduation feast, for interrupting the words of Teiresias. The tears ooze down my cheeks at the memory of his hard prophesy. Allow me to complete my stop tomorrow night when we shall continue this feast. Then shall I be less oppressed by the memory of my weary pathway hither." So Odyssous sat down, and for many minutes the guests sat in their own silence, until one by one they arose, and with few words to each other, left the hall. Finally Alkinoos got up with his wife who escorted Odysseus to the guest bed with the artfully woven covers. » t 94 Cardiology Dr. Denenberg. good "vibing his way into your heart.

I did what the wise goddess had told me: carved from the great wheel of wax. melted it, and plugged each of my companions' ears, having first instructed them to lash me to the mast, so that I might hear the sirens' sweet song. Soon they became clear to me and my heart went out to them. "Great blooded Odysseus, tarry with us here awhile and we will teach you our song. First we shall show you the glistening beach where you may repose day-long with cool beers in the sun, then in the night with gin and daiquiris our hands will conjure your perfect body. Long parties we have with driven music to wrest your pituitary from its tiresome shackles. Our lady Methamphetaminos will spark your sinews, making the hours longer, and your journeying shorter. And if the bed of sleep should call you, the twin sisters. Valiuma and Demerofa. in their laps will nestle your battered brain. Do not weary your sweet self with the ardors of this fruitless journey. Here wo have mindless television, men and women full of conversation and more succulent fruits should you want them, and always unlimited penicillin and Acyclovir when you need it." So they sang, and I longed for their delirious pleasures. For in my younger days my full body had been no stranger to the vistas of my far imagination. But my men fastened me with more lashings, and beat the deep water to a white foam, and soon their voices could be heard no more. 122HELIOS ABUSE Onward we traveled, onward on the bare back of the water, driven we knew not whence nor whither. The ocean can be immense, formless, like a nightmare. But from it there is no escape to wakefulness, no thankful touch of hard smooth chairleg in the dawn halflight. Finally we saw the island of Helios, the Sun. bringer of joy to mortals, who sees and hears all things. He is the unstinting source beckoning to the trembling leaves; and all living things share in the fellowship of his flame from man to Pseudomonas. And in his light reside also truth and wisdom. Through it did the world's great healers learn often to comfort, sometimes to relieve, and rarely, to cure; to succor and respect their patients, even in the ignominy of creeping disease; to respect in spite of the failure of their efforts, even to the triumph of cradling death; above all to do no harm. And yet the heart was stricken within me for Circe had warned me, as had Teiresias. to avoid this place with its broad backed cattle and fat flocks, raised and doted upon by the god of the sun. So I ordered the men to row onward. But they cried out as with one voice, protesting against me. saying "You are a hard man, Odysseus, your limbs never wear out; you must be made of iron to order your men onward, worn with work and wanting sleep. Let us ashore to make ready the fat feast on fast land; and in the morning go forward refreshed." So we went ashore, and ate. and slept the heavy sleep. But during the nitwit, south winds plied close the dark clouds and the dawn spread her fingers not rosy, but wan. weakly, washing us with rain and a grinning wind as if still buried in the clutches of night. Six days we huddled, smeared against that shore beneath the sheer cliffs. We wure content as long as our provisions lasted, but on the seventh day they were all exhausted, and I sent the men to fish, and trap game; above all not to slaughter the sacred herds of Helios. Meanwhile I went along the coast and prayed the gods that they might shosv me a way out of our predicament. But all they did was cast heavy sleep upon my eyes while among my men. their hollow stomachs soon made them forget my words, driving them to terrible deeds. Some, standing at the bedsides of those wracked by old age. but with minds entire, idly discussed their patients. Others, for fear of seeming inept, again and again stuck at infants'collapsed veins, rather than ask for more skilled help. Some discussed cases loudly by name on elevators. Some, in blithe indifference, would forget their patients on bedpans. To the ultimate clinical professors ... our patients: For every marathon sophomore H P. for the millionth suture removal (and the first suture placement), for every cold stethoscope as your breakfast appetizer; for the privilege of witnessing your births, and for teaching us that death, after all, is a part of life ... we thank you. 124Beards PARDON OUR APPEARANCE WE ARE WORKING TO MAKE TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL BETTER AND MORE CONVENIENT FOR YCSome would start IV's or place Foleys just for practice, or seeking kudos from attendings. wake patients from the healing sleep for routine tests they had forgotten to order the day before. Some, with lust in their hearts, roughly would perform pelvic exams on modest women; while others, unable to face the urges within them, would avoid pelvic exams when they were needed. Sometimes in psychiatry clinic, students would sleep while patients talked of their sickness; or in medical clinic would ignore or mock the psychiatric reasons for a visit ostensibly made for lower back pain. So did my companions slaughter the cattle of Helios, and all the time explaining their actions: "We will take the twelve best animals, and sacrifice them to the gods, and our residents and chief attendings will be pleased with us and speed us homeward.'1 But Helios, seeing this, was enraged, demanding of Zeus a just retribution. So Zeus, gatherer of the clouds, abated the wind and storm, and my men gloating in their hearts, went aboard the sleek ships with thoir spoils; but I would not eat of that meat though the sharp hunger was on me. So we sailed with following wind, but no sooner were we out of sight of land than a new storm arose, making the other seem like a summer breeze. Zeus sent lightning and thunderbolts upon the vessels, slashing the forestay so that the mast crashed down upon the helmsman, driving his spine into his brain lifting his proud life from him. Everywhere my men were flung from the vessel bobbing like feathers in the churning brine, and swept away. I went back through the ship and where the keel had been torn away, there I lashed it to the fallen mast, and clinging to both rode the snarling storm-wind; driven nine days on the ocean current never to see my companions again, to the island of Kalypso. 126WHO SAID IT?

Sounds crazy, doesn't it? Here in our little village of Temple Medical School, you might say that each of us is like a Fiddler on the Roof ... But then again, you might not. You'd probably say that each of us is like an idiot, trying in the face of ridiculous circumstances to scratch out a passing grade without losing his mind. It isn't easy. You may ask. why do we come here? Why do we slave day after day, sit through hours of lecture trying to learn a collection of esoteric facts we may never use again? Why do we suffer through sleepless nights. Doc's coffee, and endless exams? That, my friend, I can tell you in one word — PHYSICIAN. CHORUS Physician, physician — physician! TEVYEH Who everyday must scramble into lecture, stuff his face with coffee, take his daily notes? And who has no right to ask too many questions or even live a normal life? TEVYEH: And so, we labor here at Temple Med for four long years, so we can become physicians. We suffer because we know that someday it will be worth it. We will be respected, we will have made many accomplishments, attained in life a certain position ... But at the same time, we will have shouldered ourselves with enormous debt. For to come here, we must borrow thousands and thousands of dollars, mortgage our father's houses, eat at McDonalds, sell our stereos ... All so that we can pay — Tuition!

The Doctor There are men and classes of men that stand above the common herd: the soldier, the sailor, and the shepherd not unfrequently; the artist rarely, rarlier still, the clergyman; the physician almost as a rule. He is the flower (such as it is) of our civilization; and when that stage of man is done with, and only remembered to be marvelled at in history, he wiU be thought to have shared as little as any in the defects of the period, and most notably exhibited the virtues of the race. Generosity he has. such as is possible to those who practice an art. never to those who drive a trade: discretion, tested by a hundred secrets; tact, tried in a thousand embarrassments; and what are more important. Heraclean cheerfulness and courage. So it is that he brings air and cheer into the sick-room, and often enough, though not so often as he wishes, brings healing. —Robert Louis Stevenson 152153154Gregory Richard Applegate, M.D. Jack and Mom - Thanks for your support There is a tide in the affairs of men.

Auntie, who loved me as her child: My family, who has always been there to provide me with strength and support. 265John Joseph McCloskey, M.D. 266267268IF- If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you. But make allowance for their doubting too, If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don't deal in lies. Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise If you can dream-and not make dreams your master. If you can think-and not make thoughts your aim. If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two imposters just the same. If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools. Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools: If you can make one heap of all your winnings. And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss. And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them. "Hold on!" If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue. Or walk with Kings-nor lose the common touch. I f neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you. If all men count with you. but none too much. If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds' worth of distance run. Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, And—which is more—you'll be a Man. my son! Rudyard Kipling [1865-1936] 269"I like sitting in the front row." Meijer MEDICAL STUDENTS?

"Off we go into the wide blue yonder 272Rhoncfo Michelle Mitchell, M.D. One nighi I had a dream I dreamed I was walk ing along the beach with the Lord and across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, one belonged to me, the other the Lord. When the last scene of my life flashed before us. I looked back at the footprints in the sand, I noticed, that many times along the path of my life, there was only one set of footprints. FOOTSTEPS IN THE SAND I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life. This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you. you would walk with me all the way, but I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why in times when I needed you most, you would leave me." The Lord replied, "My precious Child, I love you and I would never, never leave you during your times of trials and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, IT WAS THEN THAT I CARRIED YOU." 273Some sisters share everything - even rotations: Karen, student BSN and Mary, JMS with our favorite patient.

But she. half mortal, whose father is Atlas, who holds the globe and has sounded the depths of all oceans, she expected my arrival, and carried me from the shore to her cave, and soon, with divine craft and potions, restored me. Then seeing my fine thighs, and the great shoulders on me. like a mountain rising from a great plain, and loving my wily ways, always withholding judgement, and never speaking my mind straight out. soon. I say, did the goddess want me for her spouse. With every trick and flirtation did she try to seduce me. The tracker’s thrill in the physical examination, heart sounds split and unsplit, paradoxical and alternans. the infinite puzzle of differential diagnosis; the chase of the work up; yields, sensitivities and specificities; the consummation of diagnosis; the climax of therapy: drug interactions, dosages, regimens; and then, perhaps, the fulfillment of cure like a blissful sleep. With all the glistening beauty of medicine did she ply me; now the acetylene interventions of surgery, now the miracle of birth; the holy privilege of insight into the multiplex human mind, the interaction with peers as driven and gifted as I; the honor and veneration of men; even the laughter of little children in the maytime landscape. Yet still was the heart in me not won over, for Medicine must be a main part of a Physician's life, and not a substitute for life; and I longed for my home and the people dear to me. Seeing this. Kalypso spoke to me saying. "All this, and all that you can see can be yours if you will just kneel down at the altar with me. And still you insist on sitting, chin in hand on the beach, face to the east with longing eyes, blubbering for your home." And I, so as not to anger my mighty hostess: ”0 dreadful Kalypso how certain it is that my wife Penelope, while beautiful, is a homely milkmaid to you. And yet many trials and hardships have I borne for the day of my homecoming and will endure many more if the gods so will it. For I must be the man that I am. No golden ideal or ethereal form of beauty can substitute for the place a mortal man calls home. Always will I hold dear your teachings, and the wonders you have shown me, and use them through all my days as 3 healer. But now, I must again risk my fate on the merciless sea to see whether I cannot finally come home to Ithaka." So Kalypso gave me an axe of bronze double headed, with shaft of hard wood. finely crafted, and with it I built a raft. with mast, and sail provided by Kalypso, finely woven, and fitted out with provisions enough for weeks of sailing and skins filled with water and with wine. 332 Dean Henikoff "The life of an institution is its people."LAWS OF THE HOUSE OF GOD LAWS OF THE HOUSE OF PARKINSON I.

For seventeen days and nights I sailed, and on the eighteenth caught sight of this. Lords and ladies, your fair Phaiacian land." CONCLUSION So finally, Lords, and ladies, I come to the conclusion of my tale. Tomorrow, the gods willing, your swift ships will carry me to the shores of my homeland.

But not all Teiresias'words were of that hue that took the strength from me last night, with tears like sap from the wounded pine. True, he did prophesy — oh bitter root! a final journey after all had been resolved in Ithaka. "You must travel until you come to a place”, he said "where men know nothing of compulsiveness, neuroses, caffeine tainted nights, fears, and a sense of systematic inadequacy. And I will tell you a very clear proof of this place: when, as you journey, you meet some wayfarer who sees the text-book on your shoulder and asks you what manner of doorstop it is, or whether you carry it for amusement, then will you take down the battered tome from your shoulders, and dig a hole, and bury the book. From that place will spring a great and far reaching oak. that will briny joy and shade to many generations of men". When he had finished speaking, he quickly bent down and observed the Mg++ level in my offering, referred me to a case report in Acta Medicologica Skandinavic3 from 1953. volume 48. pages 1296-8, and went back whither he came. Let us rest, honored listeners. My tale is done. o aoo 334 All parts of "Medical School Odyssey" copyright Anthony Dean. 1984.335Medical Communications Robin Gelber.

HARRY MAX BAER A NOTE ON ACADEMIC COSTUMES A relic of medievalism in modern university life is the academic procession. The somber gowns and colorful hoods are not unlike those worn by scholars and churchmen perhaps as early as the twelfth century. The garb in those times had an element of unity. The robes were warm; the hoods could be drawn up to protect against drafts in unheated buildings. Traditionally, the hood’s silken lining has been in the color of the wearer’s university, and the color of the bordering velvet indicates the special area of study. Dark green velvet represents medicine; dark blue, philosophy; white, arts, letters and humanities; yellow, science; purple, law; lilac, dentistry; olive, pharmacy. Tassels on the “mortar boards,” or caps, of the candidates for degrees correspond in color to the velvet borders of the hoods. Gowns representing the bachelor’s, master's and doctor’s degrees vary in style. The bachelor’s gown has long pointed sleeves; the master’s gown, longer, narrow, closed sleeves which extend below the knees; and the doctor’s gown, full bell-shaped sleeves with three bars of velvet and a front opening, faced with wide velvet bands in either black or the color indicating the area of study.
