    Osteopathic Medicine A reformation in progress.
     
  5. I agree with both suggestions
    Also read The Lost Art of Healing by Bernard Lown I used it for my med school essay to describe the bond between the dr patient relationship.

    An exerpt on Dr. Lown's philosophy
    ".. the doctor is taught to focus on the cheif complaint (CC)... unfortunately the chief complaint may not be what bothers the patient most and may have little to do with the underyling problem. I learned this while a student at Johns Hopkins Medical School.... Doctors focus of the CC primarily b/c medical schools do not train students in the art of listening.. fundamentally, the aim is to understand the medical problem as well as the person behind the symptoms.. but also comprehend character, namely 'what makes Sammy run'... my research over three decades has increasingly focused on exploring connections between mind and heart. No doubt what one does is largely the result of who one is..."

    In his book he gives over 150 case exmples of what to look for in terms of a diagnosis. A wonderful addition to any library!
