The Clinic for Special Children is a small medical practice by design—it has not adopted the modern medical system as its scientific or business model. It uses modern technology, but with a different focus: to do “small science,” basic research on a small scale, with the case study as the fundamental unit of work and a priority on spending time with the patient. Morton discusses the benefits of this way of practicing medicine Dr. D. Holmes Morton cofounded the Clinic for Special Children, a nonprofit medical center or children with inherited metabolic disorders, in 1989, and served as its medical director for many years.
