Institute on Human Values in Medicine. Reports of the Institute Fellows. 1973-74.

This document is a compilation of reports of persons involved in the fellowship program offered by the Institute of Health and Human Values. The fellowship program centers around recognition of a need to support faculty development so that appropriately trained people can be available for emerging programs that teach human values as part of health professional education. Four major areas are examined in the fellowship reports. The first deals with values, their formation and dimensions; literature and language in relation to value formation and health care; attitudes, feelings, and values in educating a medical student; and observations on the learning of values in a clinical context. The second area involves the study of ethical issues in medicine, international health, philosophy, and law. Interdisciplinary studies is the focus of the third section of reports. The relations between psychiatry, law, sociology, and health care are exposed. Another report examines participation in an experimental program relating humanistic studies to a premedical curriculum. The last area explores the development of new courses through literature, science, and ethics in biomedical research and health care delivery. (Author/JR)
