ABSTRACT
Comments on medical education, and how the beginning of a physician's education must be an intellectually tenable conceptualization of medicine itself. View that the first concerns in medicine are cognitive, having to do with illness or sickness; Idea that the student needs to proceed from a tenable concept of medicine itself to other concepts; Importance of learning the essential principles of medical practice; Opinion that education in the theory of medicine is not a part of the education preparation toward practicing as a scientific doctor.
