Towards a Post-Flexnerian Revolution, 1st ed
Author: Thalia Arawi, PhD
Presenting a much-needed reminder that the medical profession is intrinsically a moral venture, this book calls on the broader medical community to recognize and remedy flaws in the moral education of its medical school graduates. It contends that many physicians have lost touch with the importance of interpersonal skills and ethics in their treatment of patients.
Using case studies from the US and Lebanon, Dr. Arawi, a bioethicist at the American University of Beirut Medical Center and founding director of its bioethics and professionalism program, proposes a way forward to shape the medical education curriculum in order to better ensure that medical schools are graduating virtuous physicians whose interpersonal and ethical skills are as strong as their other medical skills.
Thalia Arawi is Founding Director of the Salim El-Hoss Bioethics and Professionalism Program (SHBPP) at the American University of Beirut Faculty of Medicine and Medical Center - the first and only Regional Bioethics and Professionalism Program in the Arab Region. Dr. Arawi is the first Arab to specialize in Bioethics with two PhDs. She is also the Clinical Bioethicist, Clinical Ethics Consultant and Certified Healthcare Mediator at AUBMC.
