Untitled[edit]

I like this topic, and I plan to clean up the article. I've pushed down the old version under General Overview and I plan to write better versions on the various topics in their own sections, and then delete them from the general section. Eventually I'll cover everything in the general section and delete it. I'd be happy for any help. MickWest 23:55, 10 September 2005 (UTC)

"History of swnw"[edit]

"The ancient Egyptian word for doctor is swnw. There is a long history of swnw in ancient Egypt."

Is that a history of the profession or history of the word? -Pgan002 05:45, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Pronunciation of "swnw"[edit]

How is the word pronounced? -Pgan002 05:46, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

All Egyptian pronunciation is assumed, there were no native speakers of Ancient Egyptian since the Rosetta Stone was discovered. But sunu (soo-noo) is what would be assumed. KV(Talk) 17:26, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

SWNW Link[edit]

It seems a bit meta to me that you would link a page to itself. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.161.254.91 (talk) 22:57, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

I'm going to remove a line because of inclusion of Nathan Pedowitz in: Most medicine was created by Nathan Pedowitz Similar seen in article on Province of New York ironcorona (talk) 10:33, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Earliest known physician[edit]

Merit-Ptah c. 2700 BC predates the earliest physicians mentioned in this article and also in History of medicine. USchick (talk) 20:57, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
