(provided by applicant) The public of the United States is asking that physicians be better prepared to deliver humanistic medical care by learning behavioral and social sciences, such as medical ethics, medical economics, cross-cultural care, and mind-body medicine, as well as the clinical and basic sciences. The proposed project will develop innovative behavioral and social science curricula across two medical schools, and in collaboration with 16 other U.S. medical schools. Our goal is to better prepare students of medicine, nursing, and pharmacy, and their multidisciplinary faculty with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to provide patient-centered care in the 21st century.
