Medical Education: Humanities in Medicine

For Residents, Interns, Med Students

Humanistic Education

"...humanistic education aims at forming a whole person who is compassionate, knowledgeable, and who acts in the world. It aims to educate the emotions as well as the intellect, to enhance compassion as well as critical thinking, and to encourage active engagement in public and/or professional life."


"Hence the rehumanization of medicine involves enhancing, restoring, and attending to the humanity of students and caregivers as well as of patients."
