Alternative Tools For Medical Students

Fourth-year medical students get an alternative look at healing. While they agree that a heart attack victim needs care in a state-of-the-art cardiac unit, a chronic pain sufferer usually just gets pills thrown at them--a not so effective approach. Knowing many approaches to patient care makes more effective doctors.

The students, two men and two women, were from the University of Minnesota Medical School's Center for Spirituality and Healing, a national leader in complementary therapies and healing practices.
