Many wishes to become Doctors some become Doctors and very few become successful Doctors.

The success is very little understood word in any profession less so in Medical profession. Many gold medallists fail, not that they are less intelligent, just because they lack creativity and fail to adopt to the needs of the society. Medicine, while founded in science, has long been called an art. Likewise, the delivery of medical care is known as practice, though it will likely never be made perfect. The rigorous training and skills associated with providing expert medical care today leaves little room for individualization, but by fostering creativity among its students, society will benefit from the innovation and ground-breaking discoveries realized by those entrusted to provide the best care possible. Clinical knowledge consists of interpretive action and interaction-factors that involve communication, opinions, and experiences. Many good teachers influence the students, in turn makes able Physicians. With the habits of studying till exhaustion, being in the top 10%, feeling like any exam is too easy, all these attitudes transported into medical college create an enormous potential for burnout and a definitive creativity killer. In order to maintain and develop creativity, we have to be both critical and curious. Another interesting point is our medical colleges have rigorous structure in the curriculum. Understandably so, they have to pass the accreditation in order to grant MBBS and MD, and a structured curriculum is a definite prerequisite for a passing the examinations. Medicine is an art; there is not always one right answer. Not every patient is cast from the same mould and broad idea of a one-size-fits-all treatment model is not always appropriate. Innovation and creative

thinking is necessary to develop new methods of health care delivery, discover new medicines or treatment options, or prevent the emergence of new diseases. By educating our students and encouraging creativity, who are future health care practitioners, to be more receptive to creative input and encouraging innovative thinking, the great minds entrusted with delivering health care will not become stifled by the repetition and unoriginality, that is todays health care system. We teachers make our students as clerks with rigid documentation as the standardization and regulation required in todays health care system has pushed creativity and innovation out the door, leaving room for endless paperwork and documentation. Many of us as teachers, develop lethargy to work with monotonous practices and dogmatic teaching attitudes, to work after few years of service in turn we make uncreative students. The visionaries and pioneers in medicine have always looked for innovative solutions to improve the practice of medicine. Fortunately, creativity is not restricted to great artists, but it can be fostered by training, encouragement, and practice to our Medial students. If we look at our students everyone has some potential or other but we look at the matters in a dogmatic way. Creativity is a biological process, and people can be trained to be open to environmental stimuli than can provide opportunities for imagination and ingenuity. Everyone has the power to be creative; while not everyone will paint a masterpiece or write a great novel, everyone can be curious, seek change and take risks; however they can rise to the occasion and become talented Doctors if we understand their potentials of creativity. Many western medical schools are catching on to the notion of medicine as a creative discipline and implementing classes and changing curriculums to cultivate novelty rather than penalise students with our monotonous ideas,
