Bringing back the art of medicine

“Art and medicine may seem disparate worlds, but Dr. Verghese insists that for him they are one. Doctors and writers are both collectors of stories, and he says his two careers have the same joy and the same prerequisite: ‘infinite curiosity about other people.’”

Abraham Verghese, who will be speaking at Stanford+Connects Europe in September 2013, is not only a successful physician and Stanford School of Medicine professor, but also a bestselling author. Now he is crusading to bring a more personal touch back to the increasingly cold and scientific field of medicine.

Get to know him in this New York Times profile: “Physician Revives a Dying Art: The Physical."
