Creative Healers

A collection of Essays, Reviews, and Poems from the Pharos 1938-1998



“Creative Healers is an extraordinary collection of essays, poems, and reviews from The Pharos. The material is scholarly, moving, beautifully written, and highly pertinent to the central concerns facing medicine today. Many of the articles are recognized classics. This is the finest collection of essays in the medical humanities I have ever seen.”
