The next presentation in the AMEE Webinar series will be presented by, Jonathan McFarland, Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University -“Medical Humanities: a way to transform society” on Tuesday the 11th of February 2020 at 14:00 (2pm) GMT.
The humanities are now very topical in medical education; for instance, in the last AMEE conference, there was a whole theme dedicated to them. More and more understand that the humanities are needed to restore balance to an increasingly scientific and technologically orientated curricula. The practice of medicine is, however, to do with people, and the humanities are necessary to help health professionals deal with people’s preoccupations, worries and concerns.
Taking this as a starting point the main concern of this webinar will be how the (re)introduction of the humanities into medical education and practice can help not only on an individual and personal level (i.e. the Doctor-patient relationship) but also on a wider societal and global level. How the humanities are needed to help change and transform society at this critical and complicated moment.
