VCOM-Carolinas Spirituality in Medicine Talk
Steven Corso, MD, is a specialist in hematology-oncology who practices at a number of Spartanburg area hospitals, including the Gibbs Cancer Center and Research Institute. On January 29, Dr. Corso shared a talk with VCOM-Carolinas students encouraging them to incorporate patients’ faiths into future care plans. This event was hosted by the Christian Medical and Dental Association (CMDA) student org.
Dr. Corso asserts that a patient’s beliefs can guide their goals and wishes in treatment. He illustrated the idea with a story of a young cancer patient whose Christian faith brought her peace throughout the treatment process, helped her to set goals such as spending more time with family and living purposefully, and guided her in treatment choices, including hospice care.
