Emotional intelligence has been proven through various researches to be an important factor in achieving success for most people. Unlike intelligent Quotient (IQ), emotional intelligence (EI) is much more concerned with human factor, empathy, empathetic validation, handling emotions and the ability to react in various difficult situations especially in the professions which have to deal with people on a daily basis. In the medical profession, doctors and other medical professionals have to deal with the public who are under some form of illness and also with the patients’ family members. Based on different appreciations, proofs and critiques of emotional intelligence brought by various articles and research, this article highlights the notion that medical professionals who are emotionally intelligent can bring positive impact not only for their patient and the family members of their patients, but also for themselves and the entire medical community.
