Balint in a Nutshell
The essays for the Ascona Balint Award give a deep impression of the students’ experiences, reflections and conclusions. And they show an insight into medical education in different countries.
“I learnt the importance of practicing patient-centred medicine – of avoiding the tendency to reduce people to numbers and trends, and treating them as people with individual experiences of illness.“
“One of my insights about that time was that my weakness of identification with the patient’s experience that made my experiences as intense as they were, was probably one of my strongest characteristics as a ‘nearly physician’.“
“I’m proud to be a part of this profession and I’m proud to have been a part of George’s care. He taught me that as a future physician I may be able to cure some people but as person I can care for all of them.“
