In IP 701, Health Care and the Humanities, we explore issues related to health and health care through the arts and humanities as a means of developing critical thinking, reflection, analysis and other skills that contribute to empathetic, patient-centered care. The new structure of the course will allow me to offer special seminars based on themes like women's health, child health, addiction narratives, and disability narratives that appeal to professional students across colleges. Elective only. Literature may also be used on the required FLEX 1, 2 and 3 Health Humanities courses, but this is unclear. 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.
