The physician. Early health care was concerned with the individual. Public health and prevention were emphasized and dominated most thinking until the early 1900s. Until that time, the state of medicine was primitive and lacked a scientific base. Also, health problems were primarily a result of poor sanitation, poor living conditions, and con taminated water. Health care has changed because medicine has become a scientific discipline as well as a political force.

Few are oriented to the humanities and social sciences. The profession requires a tremendous time commitment to ensure competence. The physician is the person each of us turns to for guidance and direction when we have a health problem.

Physicians are in powerful positions and play a critical role in the delivery of care and in any changes in health care delivery.
