A este respecto, la medicina puede arrojar cierta luz. Algunos enfermos se dejan llevar por creencias adscritas a dos modelos: ontológico o disarmónico. En el primero, un ser misterioso nos posee y castiga por quién sabe qué culpas. En el disarmónico, la enfermedad obedece a que hemos perdido la sincronía con el cosmos y nuestro reloj biológico se ha desacompasado respecto al orden universal.

About jonmcf

Jonathan McFarland lives in the beautiful town of Soller on the othe side of the mountains of Mallorca with his family and other animals, and in his spare time he loves walking in the mountains, reading, cooking paella and looking after his garden. He is also President of MHAM, Medical Humanities Association of Mallorca. For the last decade He has been dedicated to teaching Medical English to physicians, health professionals and all those working in health. Currently he works in two hospitals in Mallorca, Son Espases University Hospital and Son Llatzer Hospital, as well as teaching in Primary Care and in Public Health. Although not Medically trained, having a BA Hons Degree in English and History, he has always been interested in medicine. Maybe this is due to being around Doctors day in day out or maybe this is because he comes from a strong medical family in Liverpool. Whatever the case he believes that what he is doing is essential for the Spanish Doctors and nurses. Medical English is an enormous field and encompasses many areas: the Doctor - Patient relationship, wherein the doctor often needs to speak and explain to non Spanish speakers, Research - English is the language of Biomedical investigation, and Training - Undergraduate, Postgraduate (Resident Training) and CME (Continuous Medical Education). Jonathan is interested in all of these, but at present is working on two important projects: Resident Training, which is the key to the future, and Clinical Sessions in English, his intitiative and which he has promoted and is currently taking charge of in both Hospitals and in around 24 different departments, ranging from Oncology to Immunology and Traumatology to Microbiology.
