The Healer's Art

The Healer's Art addresses a hidden crisis in medicine: the growing loss of meaning and commitment experienced by physicians nationwide under the stresses of today's health care system.

Taking a mostly experiential approach, students are encouraged to identify, strengthen, and cultivate the human dimensons of the practice of medicine, recognize the commonality of personal concerns among their peers and faculty, trust the power of listening and the presence to heal others, and strengthen and develop a personal commitment to medicine as life's long work.

This Spring, UT medical students will have the opportunity to interact with Baylor medical students in this course.

All sessions are held from 6:00 — 9:00 pm in the DeBakey Building of Baylor College of Medicine in Room M310.

Due to the close-knit and intimate nature of this course, students are required to attend all five sessions in order to receive credit.

Enrollment is limited.

If you are interested in finding more out about The Healer's Art, please join us for a brief information session:

Tuesday, December 3 from 12:30—1:00 pm in MSB B.612.
