CBHX 2404 Introduction to Creative Medical Writing

Introduction to Medical Creative Writing is a one week intensive writing workshop. Students will read other physician-writers' works and then begin an extended piece of their own. Patient narratives, narrative competence, and medical humanities are all terms increasingly used when talking about ways to improve physician-patient interactions and satisfaction. In this introductory course, we will explore how and why writing can illuminate medicine and increase a physician's observations, making him/her more aware of the patient's needs.
