A theory for educating humanistic physicians is proffered, based on a holistic model of medical education that incorporates the interdisciplinary contributions of psychology and ethics. Four objectives for such an integrated medical education are proposed: to improve insight into the rational and nonrational components of the physician's attitudes and conduct; to improve professional awareness and cognition of, and respect for, patient values; to improve professional behavior by assessing the ways in which values are transcribed and made visible in decision making; and to improve professional ability to enhance the self determination of patients by helping them clarify their own values with respect to decisions about their health.
