The role of compassion is usually not well addressed in medical education. Several scenarios of breast cancer and the use of medical informatics were presented to the participants without referring to the progression of the disease as anything but stages without identifiable human beings possessing the “disease.” The purpose of this study was to find out how medical students would respond to the omission of pertinent patient information that would create a holistic model of a “person” including mind and body.
