Dr. Nadine Abdullah has attended advanced training in Narrative Medicine techniques and curriculum development at Columbia University. With the acquired skills, she created a faculty development workshop on Narrative Medicine in Clinical Teaching.
Upon completion of this workshop, the learner will be able to:
Identify the Narrative Medicine educational framework
Appreciate the principal methods of Narrative Medicine
Describe how Narrative Medicine practice can mitigate burnout from intense medical education and practice
Critique novel models to incorporate Narrative Medicine into medical education
Through a series of prompted writing exercises and close readings, this interactive 3hr workshop reviews the principles of narrative in medicine, contrasting it with reflective practice, and introduces faculty to various teaching methods.
This workshop is offered annual to the Master Teaching Program, Department of Medicine, University of Toronto
