CFD Humanities Toolkit – January 24th

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.

  1. Learn approaches to teaching critical reflection and close reading of texts and images
  2. Gain experience and ability to teach these skills;
  3. Explore future directions for the integration of humanities competency into medical education.
