Health and Humanities

Begins May 7, 2020

Introducing The Oasis, an Online Medical Humanities Writing Group for University of Toronto Residents and Fellows: 

This initiative, open to all GTA residents and fellows, aims to provide a safe and supportive space for learners to gather, reflect, and engage with peers during these challenging and unprecedented times. The group will meet via Zoom on a biweekly basis for a narrative medicine-based workshop co-facilitated by two psychiatry residents, Phoebe Bao and Nikhita Singhal. Writing prompts will be provided during the sessions; no prior experience or preparation required. Here’s a sample prompt: “If you could travel through time, write a dialogue between your current self and your one-month-ago self, about the future to come.”
For questions, suggestions, or to learn more, please contact Phoebe ( and Nikhita (
We encourage you to RSVP here , however drop in attendance is also welcome!
The first meeting shall take place on May 7th from 7-8:30pm.
