Insights and Commentary on Medicine and Healthcare

The Canto is the principal form of division in a long poem, which often functions to tell a "tale of the tribe," or a story that encompasses a whole culture's values and history.  The word comes from Italian, meaning "song" or singing.

In music, Bel Canto is a virtuoso style of vocal musical performance;  very roughly, the hallmarks of the bel canto style are seamless range, agility and flexibility, speed and accuracy in response to variation, pleasing, focused quality and graceful phrasing rooted in mastery of the instrument .

MedCanto is my effort to a reimagine the historical values of the medical profession in the modern era, and recapture some of the joys and value of viruosity in medical practice.
