Expansion[edit]

Surely there is more to say on this topic. When did it first appear as an academic discipline? Where? How did it propagate? Who are key figures in the field? —Theo (Talk) 00:52, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Also does it relate to Disability Studies and if so, how? Roger (talk) 16:03, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

The following sources can be used to grow this article:

They were listed under "External links" in the article but are clearly superflous there. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 14:00, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

I agree that there is more to say on the topic. Not only expanding on the general ideas like who, where, and how, but also expanding on many of the subtopics of the article. How does medicine relate to history, culture or art? These thoughts should be taken into consideration to further the details of this article. --Kuzavaam (talk) 19:07, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Filling in the Gaps[edit]

All of these sources are related to this article because some have background information of medical humanities and others include how the medical humanities relate to the social sciences and arts that are described in the introduction of this article. Some sources also include the ethics of medical humanities and they cover disabilities as well. There is enough information here to fill in many of the missing gaps of information for this article.

New Lead Section[edit]

Medical humanities is an interdisciplinary approach of combing the scientific and artistic strengths of many different professions to the field of medicine. These professions include philosophy, ethics of decision-making, history, religion, cultural studies, psychology, sociology, literature, film, and the visual arts, and they make up the humanities, sciences, and arts to bring creativity and intellect together. Medical humanities is concerned with learning about the effects of illnesses on patients and health professionals, the relationship between the doctor and patient, and the social aspect of family and work life. [Shankar].

Medical humanities is taking a leap in terms of being introduced to medical students and is commonly brought up in the education of doctors. The arts come into play as they provide an understanding of the commonly shared human experiences and individual differences, and they develop and enhance the thought process of doctors and medical students. [Scott].

Medical humanities all started in the west, as science and medicine discoveries began to develop in these regions. Many medical schools in Europe and the United States have their own medical humanities programs to educate students and enrich their abilities in the medical field through the humanities, and this term and program started becoming popular in the late 1990’s. [HM Evans]. Developing nations don’t practice the medical humanities as much, and although it is less common, it is beginning to grow as the students are taught basic medical methods. [Shankar].

I drafted a new lead section, which includes some more basic information like the ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘where’, ‘when’ and ‘why/how’ that was lacking from the original lead section. I will cite the sections with the name in brackets once the references page is updated with the articles that I got the information from. --35.20.200.160 (talk) 04:09, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
