In 2019, Ayim-Aboagye under the motivation of Torsten Gordh in Uppsala University contributed a remarkable article that outlined and characterized the notion of fundamental theorems in Medicine. The theorems, now classified as fundamental laws of medical science, have been widely accepted by many academics as the authentic theorems in medicine. They are soon to be recognized by other areas of behavioral sciences such as psychology and other public health disciplines. Indeed, fundamental theorems, with Herman Koch postulates and its extension by Fredericks and Relman, are becoming the most prominent unifying laws of medical sciences in general. In this perspective, we summarize the historical context and subsequent impact of the new fundamental theorems’ contribution.
