Doctors have become less empathetic, but is it their fault?

Jean Kim

I also think aside from research-based initiatives into empathy implementation, we need a lot more emphasis on the humanities in medical education in general. It should be a more mainstream part of the curriculum instead of how it is usually sidelined as an ‘elective’ or short class now. Medical humanities and narrative medicine naturally improve empathic medical practice and likely lead to better patient outcomes.
