Is the stethoscope becoming outdated?

AJMPlus | Jul 23, 2015

During the past hundred years, the three major symbols representing the bedside physician have been the "black bag," the white coat, and the stethoscope. It was a badge of honor during my second year of medical school to obtain all three items in anticipation of seeing patients on the hospital wards after the preclinical lecture hall experience. The stethoscope dangling from the pocket of the white coat or wrapped around the back of the neck meant to the outside world that you were now a member of the healing profession.
