24: Humanities in Healthcare, Part 1 [Nicole Piemonte]
The physical therapy profession is an evidenced-based one. Just ask any clinician, educator, or student over the last 15 years.
But physical therapists and physical therapist assistants treat humans. Whole persons with quirks and foibles and inconsistencies and flaws. And we are humans, with those same quirks and foibles and inconsistencies and flaws. How do we train our students to be clinicians who can empathize, connect, and identify with their patients?
Dr. Nicole Piemonte tells us about how important the humanities are in healthcare education (hint: it makes us better clinicians!).

Great podcast with a great crew
It is really nice to hear a group of dedicated professionals talking about issues that often get pushed to the background with our busy schedules. I look forward to hearing more episodes. Keep up the great work.
Keep this podcast going!
Loved the first episode and how the 3 of them interact! Not afraid to voice separate opinions... bringing personal stories and integrating research! Kept me engaged the entire time and I am super easily distracted even when a topic is something I’m interested in. Good podcast! Will look forward to more episodes.
