Dr. Mark Smilovitch remembers an event that helped shape him as a physician and clinical teacher. As a cardiac resident he had been asked to examine a patient who had recently undergone bypass surgery. He presented to his clinical supervisor what he thought was a complete picture of the patient. He was then asked a simple question: “Do you know what this man does for a living?” The young resident went back to the patient and found out the man worked at a zoo and regularly carried 50-pound bags of food to feed the elephants. The patient suddenly opened up, talking about how worried he was about keeping his job. Today, Smilovitch sees the value of that question about the man’s occupation. “It was a window to better understand. And it was a lesson: that you have to get to know the patient as a person.”
