Saint Barnabas Medical Center Pioneers New Program Bringing Humanities and Humanism to Medicine
Date:12/1/2008

are treating patients and not just illness. "These sessions are an important reminder to us every day that our patients are 'humans' and not just another chart," said third-year resident Xu Wang, M.D., Ph.D.

As the program embarks on its second year this fall, Dr. Panush is encouraged by the impact the program has had at Saint Barnabas Medical Center and in the broader medical community. "I hope people are rediscovering what 19th century physician William Osler, known as the Father of Modern Medicine, said when he described the practice of medicine as being an art based on science. This understanding is fundamental to clinical medicine. We are excited and proud to be at the forefront of putting this into action in our residency training program."

Ramesh Guthikonda, M.D., a second-year resident, captured the core of the program's goals and accomplishments: "The EIP (humanities program) is like a fresh, cool breeze on a hot humid day and a new wave of thought processes of how to modify oneself to be a better doctor and, ultimately, a better human being. I feel lucky to be part of the process from the beginning."

Since 1865, Saint Barnabas Medical Center (SBMC), located at 94 Old Short Hills Road in Livingston, is New Jersey's oldest nonprofit, nonsectarian hospital. The 597-bed institution is one of the largest heath care providers in the state, treating more than 37,000 inpatients and over 75,000 Emergency Department patients each year. The Medical Center and the Saint Barnabas Ambulatory Care Center provide treatment and services for more than 300,000 outpatient visits annually.

SBMC is ranked among the top five percent of hospitals in the country for Overall Clinical Performance by HealthGrades and is the recipient of the HealthGrades 2008 and 2007 Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence(TM) and the 2007 and 2008 HealthGrades Excellence Award(TM) in Cardiac Care, Bariatric Surg
