BIOL 6522: The Healer's Art: Awakening the Heart of Medicine

Student Leaders: 
Katherine Cicolello, MD19; Sandra Yan, MD19
Faculty Adviser: 
Dr. Rachel Fowler

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 enabling students to uncover and recognize the personal and universal meaning in the daily work of medicine.
