Why Medical Doctors are the worst kind of materialist

Medical doctors are trained to know a lot about some aspect of the human body. Many years spent learning all the disorders possible. All good stuff right? Well, unfortunately, since they’re taught that they know virtually everything about some aspect of the body, any disorder that doesn’t fit their models is automatically being “invented” by the patient – and crucially – even if it isn’t, it’s not of interest to them. Quote: “If you do have some un diagnosible sort of retinal degeneration, we couldn’t do anything about it anyway”. It’s all fine and dandy for her to want me out of her office, but the fact is, if I don’t get this disorder with my eyes cleared up, it would be impossible for me to take on an academic career.
