The author reflects on the factors that need to be learned by medical students to practice modern medicine. He emphasizes the important role of doctors in inculcating to students the rules of behavior which is considered as the real curriculum in medical education. He stresses that doctors who actually take care of patients are the clinical role models for medical students and that these doctors should be rewarded to encourage physicians to behave properly in the actual practice of medicine.
