9780742534070: Healing as Vocation: A Medical Professionalism Primer (Practicing Bioethics)

This collection of essays provides educators in medicine and the health sciences an illuminating and challenging introduction to professionalism. The book takes a practical approach toward this topic, looking at what professionalism means, for the individual physician's relationship to his or her patients, to the medical profession as a whole, and to society at large. Written by leading scholars and thinkers in the area of professionalism in medicine, contributors provide a well-rounded analysis of this important topic. Although the intended audience is primarily physicians, medical students and residents, the book is a suitable primer for pre-professional health care students as well.

About the Author:

Kayhan P. Parsi, JD, PhD is assistant professor at the Neiswanger Institute for Bioethics and Health Policy of the Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. He is also the graduate program director of the online master's program in bioethics at the Neiswanger Institute.

Myles Sheehan, SJ, MD is Senior Associate Dean of the Education Program and Professor of Medicine at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. He is also a Jesuit and a priest.

Review:

Consumer-driven health care is here to stay and will evolve as the American answer to meet the needs of the uninsured and the wealthy. How should the health care profession relate to the society it serves when that society treats it as just one more lucrative service industry? This volume helps to answer that question. New and seasoned professionals alike can ground themselves in the principles that underlie the vocation of healing. The contributors to this volume are to be commended in providing the anchors to professionalism. It is a gift to society of great worth. (Emanuel, Linda)

Many physicians and educators propose a simple solution for today's moral crisis in medicine. 'Let's teach professionalism,' they say, as if professionalism were a foreign language, or an all-purpose set of rules. In Healing as Vocation, editors Parsi and Sheehan reject such superficial notions of medical professionalism. They present the reader with a series of fine essays by some of the best writers in the field. Each of these pieces sheds light on a different aspect of the complex character of medical virtue and the healing profession. A deeply provocative work. (Jack Coulehan)
