Product Description


    Core competencies related to the field of medical humanities have been provided for better understanding and framing of an institutional curriculum. The second edition is enlarged to include newer concepts and comes with a two color printing.

    Authors have used the working definition of medical humanities as “an amalgamation of medical sciences with arts, viz. philosophy, sociology, psychology, history, literature, theatre and arts, empathy, culture, and more importantly with ethics, communication, and professionalism in medical context, with interdisciplinary interaction and application of clinical skills with soft skills for improving patient care outcomes”. The book deals with teaching medical humanities in undergraduate curriculum and their assessment and should serve as a useful resource for teaching many of the AETCOM competencies.
