This elective course is a writing-intensive elective designed to help students improve their writing and critical reflection skills, and to introduce them to the concept of narrative medicine, while exploring a variety of topics relevant to the veterinary profession. Readings come from peer-reviewed, scientific literature, and classical and contemporary literary sources, with a mix of both assigned for each session. Writing objectives for each session focus on standards of good composition, and principles of narrative and reflective writing. Elective only. 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.
