Healer’s Art

The Healer’s Art course enables the formation of a genuine community of inquiry between students and physicians that encourages an in-depth sharing of experience, beliefs, aspirations and personal truths. Students and faculty participate together in a discovery model that transcends the divisiveness of expertise to explore service as a way of life. The process-based curriculum takes a highly innovative, interactive, contemplative and didactic approach to enable students to uncover and recognize the personal and universal meaning in the daily work of medicine. The 10-hour course consists of five evening sessions spaced two weeks apart. Each two-hour session is divided into a large-group and small-group experience. Small groups are facilitated by physicians.
