Novack, Dennis H.; Epstein, Ronald M.; Paulsen, Randall H.
Academic Medicine, v74 n5 p516-20 May 1999
To restore the humanism in medical care, medical education must espouse the creation of physician-healers. Personal development and well-being of the healer are neglected factors in healing care. Goals and objectives for medical education for promoting trainees' self-awareness, personal growth, and well-being are outlined, and ways to achieve and evaluate them are suggested. (Author/MSE)
