Mackenzie's puzzle--the cornerstone of teaching and research in general practice.

Author information

  • Asean-Sheffield Medical College, Ipoh, Malaysia.

Abstract

The new-found popularity of generalism as a political force has emphasized the need to clarify the essential philosophy that underpins its practice, teaching, and research. Drawing on the example of Sir James Mackenzie, the author seeks to clarify certain essential issues that need to be emphasized if we are to promote and develop general practice as a distinct academic discipline. Dissatisfaction, uncertainty about our role, and continuing contact with real people seems to be essential to continuing creativity.
