Why Doctors Write: Finding Humanity in Medicine Grand Rounds

March 10 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Why Doctors Write: Finding Humanity in Medicine explores the impact of writing, the arts, and the humanities on medical practice. In an age of technology, physician burnout, and depersonalized patient care, clinicians have  turned to these tools to care for themselves and colleagues, and to
renew their connection to patients. Why Doctors Write features a few of the practitioners who have pioneered ways to use reflective writing to recognize, accept, investigate, and nurture the most human aspects of medical care.

In this Grand Rounds you will attend a screening of the full-length (35 min) documentary, Why Doctors Write, with Dr. Coulehan, Dr. Basile, and other faculty from the Center for Medical Humanities, Compassionate Care, and Bioethics. Following the screening, Drs. Basile and Coulehan will facilitate a Q&A discussion of the video.
