In other words, she’s a cold, heartless wench. Medical education should be reserved for people with a heart. Miss Love doesn’t have a heart and is in danger of losing her soul.

Medical education should be reserved for people with a heart.

Research suggests the causal relationship is the other way around. Medical students start out with kids who have a heart -- they want to help people. But as they move through the curriculum they become less empathetic and less mature in their ethical reasoning. It's alarming that medical education seems to produce students who are brilliant when it comes to anatomy, chemistry, and physiology, but mental retards when it comes to ethics and empathic relating to others.
