Section 2: Understanding People

It is an important skill to have in medical practice to communicate effectively with colleagues, patients, and students. Increasingly, personal care has become central to good quality health care, and studies have linked medical professionalism with better outcomes.
Passages in Understanding People are based on texts or scenarios that depict an interpersonal scenarios. They may be between patients and doctors, and also non-medical settings. The candidate is tested on their ability to interpret and infer a person’s feelings, emotions, and behaviour based on the text.
