    Hello everyone!

    As many of you already know, humanities is becoming increasingly emphasized in medical schools and it’s even mandatory at a growing number. The current philosophy is that doctors are supposed to understand and empathize with their patients and not just understand the treatment of clinical symptoms.

    We would like to know how you think the humanities classes should be taught. Should they be specific to patient interactions or more abstract, such as sketching nude models? (Nude model sketching is being offered at University of Buffalo’s medical school.)

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Sincerely,

    Nude model sketch classes may not produce more effective doctors but likely produces happier doctors. 🙂

    Hello everyone!

    I figured I’d add to this thread instead of creating a new one. University Herald just published a story about how Harvard Medical School just introduced a new course called “Creativity, Medicine and the Arts.” What do you think of this attempt to mix art with STEM?

    Best of luck with your applications!
