One Minute's Advice to Medical Students





Medical Practitioners, Education, Morality, Lecturing, Hospitals

    Discusses an introductory lecture given by Mitchell Henry at the Middlesex Hospital, a version of which was published as Henry 1859. Thinks that Mitchell was 'so earnest and impressive' in upholding the 'beauties and advantages of "earnestness of purpose"' that he appeared to be 'practising, like an honourable physician, everything that he preached'. Hopes that medical students follow this advice and remember that 'practice makes perfect'.
