Fall 2013 MEDICINE

Published November 1, 2013


The field of medicine conjures images of test tubes and prescription bottles, doctors and nurses, hospitals and emergency rooms. We know that health care workers are well-educated in anatomy, chemistry, and other sciences. But when challenged by major illness or a terminal diagnosis, what we hope for is compassion and care. Instilling empathy is not only essential to “good doctoring,” it can be a natural byproduct of engagement with history, literature, and philosophy.

Authors and contributors: Dr. Sarah W. Tracy, Dr. Ann Dapice, Dana Tiger, Jim Chastain, Dr. Ronald Schleifer, Dr. Jerry Vannatta, Dennis R. Scott, Dr. Philip J. Rettig, Howard Faulkner, and John Fox.
