Arts & Humanities in Health & Medicine

Online Health/Medical Humanities Resources

Thanks to the leadership of Sarah Fung, RIII, and Jonathan Hamill, Med 2013, we have developed an on-line repository of medical humanities resources relevant to the different systems-based courses included in the pre-clinical curriculum (e.g. endocrinology, neurosciences, etc.). These are posted on the online learning platform used by our medical students, and include videos, art, poetry, patient narratives, photographs, blogs, articles, and more. We invite students, faculty and others to nominate additional resources to include as part of this repository. Also, let us know if you try to access a resource link and it fails so that we can address these lapses. Please email: pbrett@ualberta.ca.

Over time, we look forward to creating an online learning environment that supports structured interaction between a community of learners interested in the medical/health humanities.
