The Literature and Medicine dinner and discussion series class will address critical and vital topics in medicine through classical literature that addresses these issues, written by literary greats such as Anton Chekov, Ernest Hemingway, Virginia Woolf as well as physician authors such as Abraham Verghese and Danielle Ofri. Readings will be designed to address various issues faced by medical students, residents and physicians, including difficult patients, physician burn out, and the culture of medicine. Assignments will be poems, short stories, and essays. Stanford's Medicine and the Muse Program also offers researchers and students avenues through which to integrate medicine and the humanities. 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 https://postdiscipline.english.ox.ac.uk/. Data was collected and accurate in 2021/22.
