Excerpt from Psychology Applied to Medicine: Introductory Studies

The present essay has developed as a result of several years' experience lecturing to medical students.

The matter presented is an attempt to bridge over the gap between psychology and medicine. Medical education in the past has undoubtedly tended toward an ultramaterialistic conception of biology. The psychological aspect has been postponed not merely to a postgraduate period, but more often to a postpractical period, - a very proper study for the veteran after his years of experience.

Psychology is no longer merely a cultural study, but is the means of solving many practical problems presented to the physician. The subject should therefore be opened up to the undergraduate, at least in an elementary way. This gives him a better understanding of his own mental processes, which will in turn broaden his conception of the factors which make for health and happiness.
