The Narrative Medicine Program is dedicated to exploring the importance of story in the lives of patients, learners, and healthcare professionals. The goal of the program is to challenge participants to rely on narratives to approach, analyze, communicate, and empathize with patients. Ultimately, the experience the participants gain will make their overall medical communication more efficient and clear while increasing the quality of care and understanding for the patient.
