This elective will consist of five sessions throughout the semester in which students will take a journey through medical humanities in order to learn and practice tools that will aid them in becoming more compassionate and empathic physicians. Each session will delve into a unique aspect of the humanities such as reading medical-themed literature of their choice, watching visual art, engaging in discussion on issues of interest to the LGBTQ community, confronting the stigma and biases surrounding mental health within healthcare, participating in poetry writing and storytelling, and creating art/drama/music pieces to express a topic of interest. Enrichment elective only.
