520    Selected readings and commentary for the medical 
       humanities Learning how to behave and engage 
       professionally can be one of the most challenging parts of
       embarking on a career in the medical field. But using the 
       power of stories" can teach, heal, and enlighten; 
       encourage the development of empathy; and help healthcare 
       providers "be with suffering" and appreciate who their 
       patients are, not just what disease they have. The 
       humanities offer knowledge and skills that may move 
       students toward becoming better physicians. The 
       incorporation of the humanities into the traditional 
       medical education curriculum can truly make a difference. 
       In this expansive anthology, Susan Stagno and Michael 
       Blackie assemble an insightful group of contributors to 
       discuss the ways in which medical professionals can 
       powerfully engage with their students through a variety of
       literary texts. Examples as diverse as Charles Bukowski, 
       Leo Tolstoy, William Carlos Williams, Sherwood Anderson, 
       Mary Shelley, Stephen King, the comic strip Pearls Before 
       Swine, and the sayings of Buddha will provide both 
       teachers and students a rich cache of stories for 
       discussion and inspiration.".
