May one be a Doctor? (Halacha a day)

Even though illness is divinely decreed on a person; the Torah commands the Doctors to heal, as it says in Shmot 21:19 – וְרַפֹּא יְרַפֵּא – “and he shall be healed“.

It’s a Mitzvah for experts in the medical field to heal people; there is no greater Mitzvah than saving lives.

A Doctor who refuses to heal is considered a murderer – even if there are other doctors around, for some illnesses are decreed to leave only after a certain Doctor treats it.

However, somebody who is not trained to be a medical partitioner,  should  not  try healing people,  for mistreating illness is also considered murder.
