Institute on Human Values in Medicine. Third Proceedings, Southwest Regional Institute, October 17-19, 1973.
Society for Health and Human Values, Philadelphia, PA.
To further supplement the larger conference proceedings held by the Society for Health and Human Values, a smaller Southwest Regional Institute was held in October of 1973. Conference participants examined the rationale for including human values as an area of study in health professional education, the process by which this kind of teaching can be accomplished successfully, and the context in which human values programs can develop optimally. Presentations are included from five small discussion groups, each led by a consultant who had been selected for his acknowledged expertise. The first centers on the role of medical history in the education of the humanist physician, offering some suggestions on how medical history should be taught. The second centers on why philosphy should be a part of health professional education. The third defines religious studies in the context of health professional education. The fourth examines law and medicine, the myths and realities in the medical school classroom. The author points out that everything a doctor does in the field of medicine is related in some manner to the legal system, and doctors should become more aware of those aspects. The fifth centers around the role of social psychology, medical behavioral sciences, and health professional education. The first and second proceedings are described in SO 007 920 and SO 007 921.
