About Abraham Verghese

Abraham Verghese Biography

Before he finished medical school Abraham Verghese spent a year on the other end of the medical pecking order as a hospital orderly. Moving unseen through the wards he saw the patients with new eyes as human beings rather than collections of illnesses. The experience has informed his work as a doctor -- and as a writer.


Imagining the Patients Experience was the motto of the Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics which he founded at the University of Texas San Antonio where he brought a deep-seated empathy. He's now a professor for the Theory and Practice of Medicine at Stanford where his old-fashioned weekly rounds have inspired a new initiative the Stanford 25 teaching 25 fundamental physical exam skills and their diagnostic benefits to interns.

He's also a best-selling writer with two memoirs and a recent novel Cutting for Stone a moving story of two Ethiopian brothers bound by medicine and betrayal.

He says: I still find the best way to understand a hospitalized patient is not by staring at the computer screen but by going to see the patient; it's only at the bedside that I can figure out what is important.
