Humanities course in med school curriculum

The David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA is launching a new humanities curriculum in the belief that it will foster insight into the human condition for students (“Human Touch,” U magazine, Spring 2022). I have the greatest respect for UCLA’s medical school, but I doubt that the course can do very much.

I say that because students in law school are required to take a course in ethics in the belief that it will make for better attorneys.  Yet we know from the media that is a myth.  The fact is that it is far too late to change attitudes and behavior in law school or in medical school.
