I don't have knowledge of these types of training programs, but am
interested in hearing about them.

Based upon the information presented by my research participants, as well
as my own clinical experience, I also suggest that training programs
include regular and meaningful, openly discussed reflection on the
individual internal processes of the person who is the physician.  This
done in the spirit of identifying personal issues that might interfere with
effective communication, compassion, and empathy. An earlier comment stated
that medical training still utilized 100 year old methods. If this also
includes 100 year old thinking, the lights start to come up on some of the

I'm in the process now of designing my next study, which will focus on
physician perspectives this time, rather than patients'. I hope that it
will eventually be helpful in making innovations to training.
