MCLIN 221 - HUMANITIES IN MEDICINE - SOPHOMORE ELECTIVE

[25 Hours]
Art, film, literature, history and philosophy have long been a window into the human heart, mind, soul and body. This elective will use examples drawn from these disciplines to teach and inspire reflection, analysis, and insight into medicine and the meaning of physician identity and responsibility. Through readings, presentations, trips to museums, short reflective writing, discussions, and creative expression students will deepen understanding of historical and personal expression of the meaning of medicine and the role of the Doctor. The course will meet five times (exact dates TBD, meeting 2 hours) throughout the fall semester.
