Dr. Sultz talks about the “tyranny of technology” in modern medicine. To what is he referring? How does this tyranny impact health care management, leadership, and planning? Have you experienced the tyranny yourself? Provide an example if possible.
One of the most interesting topics in this course is the natural history of disease in humans, presented in detail by Dr. Sultz. This natural history can be applied to any disease process, and it also points out where we, as medical professionals, can intervene for the good. Provide an overview of this topic, tracing the natural history of disease, and including the prepathogenesis and pathogenesis periods.
