ENGL BC3147: Introduction to Narrative Medicine | C. Friedman

English
Undergraduate Seminar
Tu 12:10-2PM

Narrative Medicine was designed to give doctors and healthcare professionals a more profound understanding of, and empathy for, the experience of illness. It teaches how to listen and what to listen for. While the skills developed are directly applicable to the practice of medicine, they are also important in any field in which human relationships are central: business, law, architecture, social work, and the creative arts. The multidisciplinary course entails a rigorous integration of didactic and experiential methodology to develop a heightened awareness of self and others and build a practical set of narrative competencies.

Prerequisites: Post-bacc students require instructor permission.
