Program Description: 


Translating research into effective and interesting forms of knowledge sharing for medical learners and the communities we serve can be challenging. The humanities offer methods that are accessible, relevant, and can improve “doctoring” skills while validating the experiences of people we research with. This talk will follow the trajectory of two humanities-based interventions.

Target audience: 
  • Physicians
Learning objectives: 

Participants who engage in this educational intervention will be able to:

  • Introduce a process of translating conventional research into humanities/arts-based interventions and measuring its impact.
  • Explore assumptions of traditional research methods and rationale for humanities/arts-based approaches.
  • Identify the benefits of incorporating humanities-based interventions into medical teaching and research.
