Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper, written by Professor Rosario Maiorca, describes the everyday professional life in the institutes of Clinica Medica and subsequently of Patologia Medica at Parma University in the second half of the fifties and in the first years of the sixties of the past century. Those institutes and that period, which have been very important for the birth of Nephrology in Italy, have already been described, from the historical standpoint, in an Italian monograph on the history of our specialty for the period 1957-2007. The present paper adds to that chapter an insight of "real life", with a lively description of the wide and passionate clinical and scientific activities of the young doctors in training and of the personality, greatly stimulating and altruistic, of their "Masters".
