Thank you for your interest in the four-part program “Narrative Medicine at UNC School of Medicine: A New Approach for Anti-Racism in Medical Education” facilitated by Sarah Holdren & Yoshiko Iwai on Fridays in April 2021: 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th (12:00 – 1:00 PM EST via Zoom).

Overall Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will be introduced to the field of narrative medicine and its pedagogical applications in pre-clinical, clinical, and health humanities educational arenas.
  2. Participants will engage with scholars of narrative medicine and grapple with ideas of anti-racism, social justice, and interprofessionalism followed by a narrative medicine self-reflective workshop.
  3. Participants will leave this workshop series with tools for applying narrative medicine to their current clinical practice and teaching, with a specific focus on furthering socially just, anti-racist medical education.

In addition to receiving a robust curriculum on anti-racism and social justice tailored for medical educators, participants who attend all 4 sessions and complete questionnaires will receive a certificate of completion from the Academy of Educators in partnership with Columbia University’s Division of Narrative Medicine. Certificates will be both electronically and physically mailed to participants.

ALL 4 sessions are required. Participants who complete all 4 sessions will receive AOE attendance credit, DEI credit for those in the DEI training program/certificate track, and the certificate of completion from AOE and Columbia University.
