Read about last year’s Narrative Medicine Symposium:
On April 1, 2016, the CFDD – in collaboration with the Brigham Education Institute (BEI) – hosted a Narrative Medicine Symposium pilot, which was attended by faculty, trainees and staff from Harvard Medical School and several HMS teaching hospitals, including Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), Massachussetts General Hospital (MGH), Dana Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI), Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH), and the Cambridge Health Alliance.
The BWH Bulletin covered the symposium with an article: CFDD Narrative Symposium Explores Parallels of Medicine, Writing.
