The importance of studying medicine


"Rav Huna said to his son Rabbah: Why are you not [learning] before Rav Chisda, whose lessons are sharp?

"Rabbah replied: Why should I go to him? He questions me about mundane matters! He tells me, "One who goes to the washroom should not sit immediately or press too hard…"

"Rav Huna replied: He is involved in the lives of people, and you say, "mundane matters"? You certainly should go to him!"

(Talmud, Shabbat 82a)

Have a great day,
