Med students learn empathy by practicing communication skills
from The Bismarck Tribune
As a senior medical student, Andrew Mills watched his teacher, an intensive care physician, talk with the family of a 20-year-old man who had tried to hang himself. "He had hung long enough that he was brain dead (but his body was still functioning)," Mills recalled. In a private room, the doctor went through every step of what had happened, what it meant and what exactly would take place if the family chose to donate his organs.
