The medical course should include in its curriculum an important subject for the training of future doctors: Calligraphy !!!


This can save lives, since if there is a mistake in the application of the dosage, or even in a failed request for laboratory tests, the fact can cause serious errors, in addition to embarrassment to patients, who have the right to know what is being done. prescribed for your case!

In São Paulo, there are already laboratories that reject illegible exam recipes, making the patient go back to the doctor to ask for a new prescription. In pharmacies, employees meet to decipher hieroglyphs.


It is unacceptable that, in times of so much transparency, a class as important and fundamental as that of doctors, still feel entitled to maintain a "secret code", whose arrogance of attitude makes us believe, guarding information to someone who is already weakened by situation itself, bringing more distrust about an area as sensitive in Brazil as Health.


The hope is that young doctors who use the scribble will learn from their seven-year-old children a basic lesson from the second grade onwards: a legible cursive handwriting!
