A Hands-On Approach to Medicine and Ministry

David Hirsh noticed that third-year medical students tended to lose empathy for patients during their intensive rotations among many disciplines. To counter the trend, he helped Harvard Medical School develop a program that required teams of students to follow patients through diagnosis and treatment even after they were discharged from the hospital. It worked; the experience teaches medical students to be empathetic and patient-centered, and it's a concept that can benefit other professionals, including those in ministry and ministry training. Ministering, like medicine, must be done with a hands-on approach or you may lose sight of the people behind the practice.
