2018 History Exhibit: Erecting Giants: Medical Memoirs

"Giants" of medicine are those men and women who add great, important and unusual contributions to our specialty. They are not necessarily forged from one achievement, but are often erected from elements of life that include education, mentors, research, teaching, training, exploration and risk. Fortunately, many of these giants (or those who knew them) were compelled to write their memoirs in the effort to teach those who follow them in time, place or practice. We consider their lessons as we advance ourselves, our patients and the future of our field. Such giants inspire us to contemplate our own achievements and ask, "What can I do to build the giant in me?"
