FOSTERING THE NEW REVOLUTION IN CANADIAN MEDICAL EDUCATION
There is a growing body of research that suggests that exposing medical trainees to the humanities (including: literature, film, poetry, and visual arts) fosters enhanced critical reflection and empathy in physician-patient encounters. Furthermore, such exposure celebrates the subjective and emotional facets of learning alongside more conventional scientific/evidence-based approaches.
