Honestly, seeing how much variety there is in the medical practices of doctor to doctor and knowing there are only maybe 3-4 veterinary schools in the country, I have come to the conclusion that the ability to practice medicine comes from a combination of opinion and personal outlook, dedication, love of the job, and an ability to step away from the patient or situation and look it with a rational, clinical and medical eye.
Since working at the hospital I've only come to realise just how much variety there is in the ability to practice the medicine they learn; its actually quite scarey, because I now realise just how many people doctors are just the same.
