Superman Meets Don Quixote: Stereotypes in Clinical Medicine
Pinkus, Rosa Lynn
Journal of Medical Humanities and Bioethics. 1986 Spring/Summer; 7(1): 17-32.
Drawing in part on her experiences as a "humanist-in-residence" on a neurological surgery service, the author discusses how stereotypic views held by and toward physicians and humanists interfere with the teaching of ethics to physicians and, indirectly, to the general public. She traces the development of these stereotypes over the past hundred years and suggests ways that they can be overcome to permit more effective working relationships between physicians and clinical ethicists.
