Description
This course will meet for three hours daily and consist of discussion of readings and films and art exhibits, which raise and illuminate issues central to the doctor-patient relationship and to student's professional development. Students will be expected to attend all seminars and to participate fully in the discussions. In addition, they will submit one continuing nonfiction writing project such as a reading journal or personal narrative related to their future profession. They will also submit a final creative project relating the course to their own experience-an essay, lecture, short story, scene from a play, sketches or a group of poems which could, in turn, be submitted for peer and/or professional review.
