Dates: Jan 9, Jan 23, Feb 6, Feb 20, March 13, 6-9PM on all dates.
Participants should plan to attend all 5 sessions. If you took this program as a student, you are still welcome to attend as a faculty member and learn from others in a similar role.
Please note that these sessions are part of the Medical School curriculum. We are inviting faculty to join the medical students in this program. When participants break out for group activities, faculty will work with faculty; students with students.
The Healer’s Art course enables the formation of a genuine community of inquiry between physicians that encourages an in-depth sharing of experience, beliefs, aspirations and personal truths. Students and faculty will participate together in a discovery model that transcends the divisiveness of expertise to explore service as a way of life. The process-based curriculum takes a highly innovative, interactive, contemplative and didactic approach to enabling participants to uncover and recognize the personal and universal meaning in the daily work of medicine.
Sessions cover following topics:
- Discovering and Nurturing Your Wholeness
- Honoring Loss
- Sharing Grief: The Healing of Loss
- Beyond Analysis: Allowing Awe in Medicine
- The Care of the Soul: Service as a Way of Life
- Heather Burrows, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Communicable Diseases
- Andrew Barnosky, DO, MPH, Professor of Emergency Medicine and Anatomical Sciences
