Tom Guarriello

No profession or function is devoid of abusers, but, in my experience, physicians rank very high on that characteristic.

Leaving aside questions of underlying character and temperament, physicians are trained to believe themselves omnipotent, superior beings. They're socialized in a system that uses hazing in the name of education. The gender distribution of physicians and nurses (until recently) played into every cultural stereotype. The stresses of the profession provide ready-made excuses. For kicks, watch Altman's MASH sometime.
