Re: Charles Christopher Smith

I remember first meeting CC as a medical student and then worked as his SHO sharing a ward with Jim Friend and Joe Legge. CC knew everybody and more importantly made sure he had the time to stop and chat.

He was one of the few physicians who seemed to be able to apply personality as a therapy.

Probably the most memorable and impressive teacher I ever encountered.
