MED 714 - SRCC-Creative Writing for Health Professionals
(0 cr.) Using the techniques of creative writing, medical students will be expected to write creative (reflective) essays related to their professional experiences. When their writing is shared in the classroom, the students will be encouraged to listen carefully and to give responsible, sensitive feedback to fellow students. From experience we know that for healthcare professionals creative writing enhances their observational and listening skills, both vital for quality patient care. Through creative writing they improve their understanding of both self and others, and as a result they are more empathic, offering more humane and compassionate service to their patients.
