NYT Article Articulates Goals and Importance of Feagin Leadership Program

An article published in the most recent Sunday Review of the New York Times articulates one of the weaknesses in our healthcare system that the Feagin Leadership Program is working to improve. The piece is from the perspective of an intern tasked with the care of a unique patient - a former doctor whose larger-than-life career includes founding the Lown Cardiovascular Group and the Nobel Prize-winning International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War. 

The intern concludes from his continued relationship and conversations with Dr. Lown that the medical education system is skewed toward learning hard sciences, and that the humanities, while overlooked and underemphasized, are important in training doctors for the interpersonal and communicative aspects of medicine.
