He moved to 13 provinces, finally wrote the Compendium of Materia Medica. He is the famous doctor Li Shizhen, the “medicine holy”. At this week's reading meeting, students shared their impressions of the film Li Shizhen.
"Li Shizhen" this film mainly tells the story of Li Shizhen. In order to rebuild the herb book, he asked the imperial medical college for approval, but failed. Then he went back home and rebuilt it by himself. For this book, he abandoned his family, sold all his possessions, and almost lost his life for several times. After thirty years, he finally finished it. But it was not until his death that Compendium of Materia Medica was finally successfully printed.
After watching the film, we were all filled with emotion. Everyone was impressed by the song "Like a retroboat, with a heart stronger than a stone. Hope father support son’s ambition. I’m not afraid to die ". Studying medicine is like a boat in the opposite direction. Li Shizhen held on. Experiencing so many adverse current, he is still so optimistic.
Although the film is a black and white film, it touches us. As the Geneva Declaration says, "When I was admitted into the medical profession, I solemnly promised that I would devote myself to serve mankind", which is the highest moral standard of medical career. Although Li Shizhen did not know this saying, he practiced it in his life. What we need is knowledge. Empty talk is useless. He takes responsibility and mission to benefit the people with all what he has learned. In addition to Li Shizhen, many other people touches us,too. They are the backbone of China.
Li Shizhen is not only a doctor, but also a loving husband, friend and teacher. The mutual affection with wife, friends and students is deeply hidden in his heart. He was a fighter who tasted hundreds of grass, but also an ordinary person who often felt sad but knew how to be happy in suffering. This is another touching point of the film.
Teacher and students also popularized the status of ancient doctors. In ancient times, the status of doctors was very low, but now doctor is a noble profession. It is precisely because of the selfless dedication of Li Shizhen and other famous doctors. As medical students, we must be diligent to continue the glory of the doctors. Many students also expressed interest in the book Compendium of Materia Medica, hoping to gain a deeper understanding of the field of traditional Chinese medicine.
Just as the teacher said, "What is immortal is the spirit". Compendium of Materia Medica has been preserved in history and become an immortal cultural treasure for thousands of years, as well as a spirit of medical practitioners. May we all live up to the efforts of our ancestors.
