Mixed-Media & Medicine (MMM)
A New Virtual Narrative Medicine Space Open To All

Narrative Medicine and Arts-based Curricula are staples of Undergraduate Studies in Medicine and increasingly in Residency and beyond, here at the University of Toronto. The opportunities afforded for engagement, reflection and social connection enrich and encourage trainees and faculty to learn in transformative ways. The COVID-19 pandemic has placed many burdens on both learners and practitioners. However, it has also presented us with an opportunity to explore new connections both virtual and visual.

MMM offers a novel discussion space for group learning, reflection and new modes of presentation that are open to all medical learners – student, faculty & staff alike. From our own UofT literary journal ARS MEDICA (https://ars-medica.ca/index.php/journal) to Zine Archives in Graphic Medicine (https://www.graphicmedicine.org/comic-type/zine/) and everything in between (Poetry, Comics, YOUTUBES, Monologues, Short Short Stories you name it), we are excited to provide a safe space for participants to discuss short(ish) representations that address spirit, wellness, resilience , consciousness, and reflection. This is an inclusive environment to which ALL are welcomed and equally valued. Please spread the word amongst all people medical – students, faculty, colleagues, tutors, professors, residents, fellows, undergrads, postgrads.

MMM will continue on the third Tuesday of every month starting in January 2021.
