Presenting a much-needed reminder that the medical profession is intrinsically a moral venture, this book calls on the broader medical community to recognize and remedy flaws in the moral education of its medical school graduates. It contends that many physicians have lost touch with the importance of interpersonal skills and ethics in their trea​tment of patients. 

Using case studies from the US and Lebanon, the author, Dr. Thalia Arawi, a bioethicist at the American University of Beirut Medical Center and founding director of its bioethics and professionalism program, proposes a way forward to shape the medical education curriculum in order to better ensure that medical schools are graduating virtuous physicians whose interpersonal and ethical skills are as strong as their other medical skills.
