Professional Interactions: Negotiation and Expression for Future Physicians and Healthcare Providers

The rapid pace of change in medicine requires doctors to be effective conflict mediators and negotiators in the clinical workplace, and a multitude of research connects strong physician-patient communication to improved patient outcomes. Disparities in such skills exist among medical students and professionals, and are neither taught nor evaluated in a standardized fashion in U.S. medical school curriculums. A structured course would benefit patients by providing protected time for medical students to refine these skills. Our proposed course, titled "Professional Interactions: Negotiation and Expression for Future Physicians and Healthcare Providers" and referred to hereafter as PINE, is outlined here to provide a starting point for those seeking to create or supplement a similar course at their institutions. PINE, ideally, would tap the multidisciplinary expertise of leaders in medicine, the humanities, business, local community organizations, and education to facilitate student engagement with a variety of topics in interpersonal communication and negotiation.
