ARTBEAT MED STUDENT HUMANITIES BLOG 2015 LAUNCH !
Ever wondered about how University of Toronto engages with the medical humanities? Want to hear more about our Companion Curriculum, and ways that we are using humanities to build community in our undergraduate medical classes?
ArtBeat, the UofT Undergraduate Medical Education’s Arts & Humanities Blog and associated club, will be having a launch event on Monday, October 5th at 12pm in Medical Sciences Building (MSB) Room 3153 with videoconferencing to the Mississauga campus.
Please join us for pizza and poetry! ArtBeat’s 1T8 leads will be speaking about initiatives planned for this year, we will hear some words from our faculty advisor Dr. Allan Peterkin, listen to a recitation of some selected poetry from our Companion Curriculum.
Our portfolio for the upcoming year includes: • Humans of 1T8 and 1T9 blogs • Synesthesia Art Show and evening Coffee House • Humanities Companion Curriculum and discussion group • Faculty interviews • Improvisational Theatre • Student art submissions • Narrative Medicine workshops • Physician panel talk • Arts and Letters cultural outings in Toronto, and more!!
We are recruiting interested 1T8 and 1T9 students to help us with these initiatives. Students and residents from all years and all Faculty interested in the medical humanities are welcome to attend and to contribute actively to the ArtBeat blog!
