Mount Sinai Recruiting HumEd Students

Some time ago, I wrote an essay about why liberal arts students, and English majors in particular, are some of the most versatile employees on the job market.  They have skills that extend beyond their subject matter.  They have excellent critical thinking, communication, and writing skills, to name just a few advantages.  Well, it turns out that one of the nations top medical schools agree.  Mount Sinai in New York has revamped it’s admissions requirements to lure humanities majors.  These “HuMed” students are just as successful as other students and have well rounded backgrounds that make them excellent doctors. Check out the link to hear the original broadcast from NPR.  This is so great!
