From the first chair of the Medical Clinic of the Faculty of Medical Sciences, they invite the task of presentation of the book In search of the lost links between medicine and culture, will be the same in the Deborah Ferrandini Auditorium of the above Faculty, on November 22 at 7:00 p.m.
The book is essentially the result of a work proposed by 2007 with the aim of defending, as the title expresses, Links lost between medical training and the humanities for various reasons. It arises from the consensus of those who are convinced that much more is needed than the pure technical training of doctors, that there is a void to be filled, beyond the knowledge provided by science, the shortcomings left in student days. To leave behind and that present is facing responsibility. This is how the virtual magazine was inaugurated medicine and culture One that survived for fourteen years thanks to the cooperation of people from other areas of culture. medicine and culture This was the kickoff for the book.
Thus the time has come for this new and passionate adventure. No less complicated was the task of selecting a limited number of essays, which undoubtedly omit others of great value and do them, together with many collaborators of the magazine, an injustice which will be compensated for in a future book. However, with this choice we affirm that each expresses a remarkable interference of the culture as a whole The formation of a humanistic physician according to our times, whose indisputable center is man and woman In the most important moments of his life. Health and disease, life and death play out on its pages through literature, cinema, painting, anthropology, history, resilience, bioethics. For this reason it is a book that has no clear address. The fate of a book can never be fully predicted in advance. If we want to try one, it should be plural: all those people who are interested in knowing about our concerns; Knowing, for example, that for a long time the chair has sought to broaden the purely biological and technological horizons of a gaze that relates to the whole of society, namely the gaze of the doctor and the doctor, to whom we will be confronted at some point. of our lives.
without forgetting that what happened to the natural recipients medicine and cultureThey are students and doctors in training, so that they understand that it is necessary to go into the humanities with a view to transform them from ordinary technicians into men and women of integrity and capable of excelling the humanitarian profession as a whole. , but at the same time individual and unique to those who consult it with the hope that they will sometimes find healing in doctors, at other times, only kind and compassionate accompaniment in all the aspects that constitute their identity
