"Medicine, a blend of arts and sciences, requires skills and knowledge from a wide array of disciplines. The most successful practitioners combine elements of the humanities and sciences throughout their career… A person who has a balanced liberal-arts education, coupled with a solid grounding in the sciences, is more likely to be a highly competent, ethical, holistic, and sensitive physician."
