I believe this is what Dr B M Hegde and other seniors are trying to convey to the medical profession. Sir William Osler, the last of giants that tried to steer the profession towards sanity, also wanted doctors to be empathetic, compassionate and study the Bible.
Another factor is that they believe their system is scientific and methodological. Yes, it seems so on the surface. But corporate greed that is in control has manipulated this framework adroitly to impose its diktats right from the day of inception. An engineering method has overtaken what essentially is a humanitarian and social subject. Corporate medicine seeking profits alone has a power and force of its own that makes it rigid and impervious to change. You cannot expect the huge industry to stop dead in its tracks, or even to pause momentarily and think.
