Psychological basis of physician's professional thinking

The peculiarities of surgeon's professional activity are shown in their connection to the type of intellect. The author uses the notion of two types of intellect: sensible (empirical) and sapient (theoretical), worked out in dialectical logics and psychology. The analysis of experimental data shows that successful surgeon usually has theoretical type of intellect. The author's conclusion is that medical education must form theoretical professional intellect in the students.
