Join us for the other 2019 School of Medicine Wellness Week events, sponsored by the Office of Faculty Affairs & Leadership Development and the School of Medicine Well-Being Committee. There will be a variety of events throughout the week of November 18th—22nd, all of which can be found here.

Danielle Ofri, MD, PhD, is a physician at Bellevue Hospital in New York City, and a faculty member of NYU School of Medicine. She writes about medicine and the doctor-patient connection for the New York Times, Slate Magazine, and other publications. Dr. Ofri is co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Bellevue Literary Review, the first literary journal to arise from a medical setting.  She is the author of a collection of books about the world of medicine, including “What Patients Say, What Doctors Hear”, “What Doctors Feel”, and “Medicine in Translation: Journeys with My Patients”. Read more about Dr. Ofri.

Her grand rounds will be on patient safety.  “Patient safety is a critical issue in medicine today. There is, rightly, a strong emphasis on
systems approaches to improving medical care and decreasing error. However, medicine is fundamentally a human endeavor. Without attention to the human aspects of the medical enterprise-emotions, cognitive abilities, biases, communication-crucial aspects of patient safety will remain beyond our grasp.”
