13Career ExampleWayne Lewis was general practitioner who escaped the pressures of clinical medicine through literature (novels and poetry). He was frustrated by the divided intellectual life. Gradually, he started to use literature to teach medical students in discussion of medical ethics. After he completed an MA in medical humanities at Swansea, he got interested in philosophy of science and theology. This opened up new horizons and allowed him to reflect on his clinical activities in all sorts of unexpected ways. Practically, he was able to incorporate discussion of religious issues, particularly surrounding bereavement, into his practice. He became a lecturer teaching literature and philosophy to medical students at the University of Wales College of Medicine, and took up a post of lecturer in medical humanities at Swansea, teaching the MA course.
