The article considers the pedagogical conditions that ensure the effectiveness of the formation of professional and ethical culture of students in medical specialties. The medical humanities have an important role to play in the humanization of medical education and practice. The authors believe that humanitarian training of medical students should occupy a sufficient place in their educational process; literature in particular can contribute to the formation of a humane specialist. The role of literature is to develop medical students’ abilities to listen, interpret, and communicate.
