This is a Bridges Curriculum Clinical Immersive Experience (CIEx), which provide medical students in Foundations 2 opportunities to broaden and enhance their professional development in health care settings different from those of their core clerkships. Student will join physician-writers and physician-artists to see how a narrative lens and humanities perspective can enhance patient care and physician well-being. Students will submit a written reflection on a patient experience. Though UCSF offers few courses that explicitly engage with literature to train medical skills or augment clinician wellbeing, there are Faculty who engage with the medical humanities in their research and independent work. The Nocturnists, an award-winning podcast created and hosted by Emily Silverman MD (Assistant Professor of Medicine at UCSF), is a good example of this. This information has been collected for the Post-Discipline Online Syllabus Database. The database explores the use of literature by schools of professional education in North America. It forms part of a larger project titled Post-Discipline: Literature, Professionalism, and the Crisis of the Humanities, led by Dr Merve Emre with the assistance of Dr Hayley G. Toth. You can find more information about the project at Data was collected and accurate in 2021/22.
