Medical Humanities in the curriculum – how did it start?
In the 3rd year of the Medical Undergraduate Curriculum the students have an opportunity to study Medical Humanities. Professor Hamish McKenzie will review the evolution of this change in the curriculum. Several undergraduates will present their work on History of Medicine, Art and Creative Writing.
Medical Humanities – the future?
University of Aberdeen staff who have been tutors will attend to comment on the work and the benefits of this part of the curriculum. Society Members will take part in the discussion to highlight how observations made by the students are relevant to attitudes and decisions in clinical practice. Dr Leeanne Bodkin will review the approach of other universities and potential developments.
