We Can Only Teach What We Practice: Reparative Social Justice & Narrative Med @ CSOM
Date & Time
Thursday, March 30, 2023, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The Narrative Medicine Track of Distinction at CSOM centers principles of healing through interconnected creative and academic arts as essential to student learning. This pedagogical framework lives in the classroom, in the development of educational programming, and in the work environment that is informed and shaped by the diverse experiences and knowledge of our faculty and board of advisors. Narrative Medicine offers our learning community strategies and practices including: self-reflection through close reading and writing, and attentiveness to the lived experiences of others, building the capacity of our students, educators, and staff to express empathy and solidarity towards one another. It assists CSOM in creating responsive and inclusive spaces to meet the diverse needs of our community, reimagining the arts as integral to medical education. This panel will explore how our team structures student engagement, educational experiences, and administrative meetings from a holistic, self-care focused, and trauma-informed point of view.
