Abstract
  • In his work, The Soul of Medicine: Tales from the Bedside, Dr. Sherwin Nuland utilized narratives from his colleagues detailing their encounters with their most remarkable patients in order to characterize what he refers to as “the soul of medicine”. However, the stories contributed focused on the practice of medicine within the United States, and therefore Nuland’s work does not necessarily describe what is at the soul of medicine practiced in many other parts of the world. This thesis explores what constitutes the soul of medicine in a global healthcare setting by presenting stories from physicians who have practiced medicine in low-income countries. From these stories I argue that, although many differences exist between the cultures, resources, and circumstances surrounding medicine in the United States relative to poorer nations, there are some important commonalities that contribute to the soul of international medicine.
