GP Annual Lecture 2018

As medical science becomes ever more complex – manipulating molecules, exploring therapeutic possibilities undreamt of by previous generations, unravelling genomic information – the role of the generalist is increasing in importance.

The more effective that science becomes at keeping us alive – living with conditions, rather than dying from them – the more we will all need a physician who can see us as a whole, rather than merely a collection of malfunctioning organs.

Predicting the future is notoriously difficult – but the breadth of skills required by the generalist physician is likely to remain vital and invaluable. What is more, it is a fascinating, challenging, stimulating, and unpredictable career.
