While on my student elective in Pakistan I was surprised to find a passage from the Koran artistically inscribed on to the wall of my allocated ward. This passage, I have subsequently learnt, has been a major motivating force for a career in the health professions. In translation it reads: “And whosoever saves a life, it is as if they have saved the whole of humankind.”
