The New Medicine (2006)
Extraordinary changes are taking place in American medicine today. Driven by new scientific evidence, doctors are coming to understand that treating the body alone is not enough – the mind can also play a critical role in the healing process.

And medical schools are placing new importance on teaching the “softer side of medicine”: listening and communicating.
