Convenors: Sarah Gull and Joanna Carter (University of Cambridge)
This conference will provide a forum for discussing the role of the humanities in undergraduate medical education. How might the arts and humanities be used more effectively in this context? While there is considerable interest in this subject at the moment, as well as a number of new initiatives, the conference organisers believe there is room for fresh perspectives. The immediate focus will be the situation in the University of Cambridge, but discussion of the broader issues and of experiences elsewhere will be encouraged. The aim is to promote open, engaged and lively discussion. To that end there will be sessions on themes such as writing, looking, patient narratives, professional development and inter-disciplinarity are being planned. Short papers will serve to prompt discussion.
