This elective is offered in March only. Students will explore the medical humanities and ethics in practice through engaged, interprofessional clinical experiences and discussions. The course will address the theme of embracing “otherness” and reframing the patient’s story. The notion of “otherness” encompasses ideas of normal v abnormal, as well as ideas about majority v minority culture, powerful v powerlessness. Students will: 1) read fiction and nonfiction literature exploring the theme of embracing otherness and reframing illness narratives, 2) explore how concepts of otherness in healthcare has changed over time and impacted medical care, 3) participate in an interprofessional discussion with nursing students enrolled in a course on Nursing for Social Change, 4) explore otherness in several clinical contexts (e.g.: rehabilitation/disability, aging, dementia, infectious disease) and in the community; and 5) participate in the final phase of planning for and attending an interdisciplinary conference in on the theme in #1.
