In this course, students seek to understand the unique interplay of health, illness, culture, professionalism, carining, and care through the use of personal narraties. The use of storytelling from multiple persons including patients, caregivers, clinicians, clergy and others will be explored as a mechanism for explaining, understanding, and interpreting human experiences. The use of testimonials, medical records, films, journals, works of art, and other media will allow students to pull accounts from various sources. Considerations around the use of narratives to gain a more comprehensive understanding of bioethical dilemmas and vulnerable populations will be the prior focus of narratives examined.
