I would like to thank Mr Greatheart for his interest in my editorial. Like Dr Finkler and colleagues, he claims that MMI correlates with producing better doctors, but provides no evidence that it does so.
Additionally, I never suggested that having an arts background should limit one’s ability to enter medical school. When one can’t find points in an argument that one can critique it is inappropriate to apply criticism to other points that were not made.
Readers interested in knowing what is actually in my editorial can read it online at www.bcmj.org/editorials/so-you-want-be-doctor.
