Einstein in the Media

The Wall Street Journal interviews Paul Gross, M.D., about the growing emphasis medical schools are placing on humanities, including courses in writing and literature, in order to help produce physicians better able to provide sensitive personal care. Dr. Gross notes that doctors rarely have an opportunity to talk with patients about their lives and their experience of being a patient. He runs a monthly session in narrative medicine, which encourages physicians to write about their experiences with patients. Dr. Gross is assistant professor of family and social medicine and editor-in-chief of "Pulse: Voices from the Heart of Medicine." (Wednesday, February 02, 2011)
