It may appear that the humanities and health sciences may have little overlap; however, as this article from the University of North Carolina discusses, a background in the humanities such as Comparative Literature is critical in developing listening and observational skills, which are important for diagnoses, patient rapport, and bedside manner.

Additionally, there is an entire field devoted to this overlap, called the "medical humanities", and UC Berkeley has a Medical Humanities program that explores the overlap.  

The UC Berkeley Career Center states that a 2017 Comparative Literature graduate is now attending the Duke NUS Medical School in Singapore.
