|Statement of Goals:|
|This course provides students with a structured forum in which to discuss poems and narratives, explore how these art forms can better inform to their medical career, and critically think and discuss how to take the lessons from art and apply them to their daily practices.
Discussion of poems and how the themes within the poetry can relate to the study of medicine, how the poetry can enlighten one’s engagement as a practicing physician, and how the poetry can aid one when working through psychologically/emotionally intense feelings that come with facing certain painful human experiences (i.e. human suffering, death, disease, etc.)
