First Canadian Conference on Medical and Health Humanities

Creating Space for Arts and Humanities in the Education of Health Professionals: Where do we go from here? A Canadian perspective.
 
Date:        May 7, 2011
Time:       9am-5pm
Location: Mount Sinai Hospital, 600 University Ave., 18th Floor, Toronto, Ontario
 
Join us at the First Canadian Conference on Medical and Health Humanities, designed to: ‘take the pulse’ of our shared work from multiple disciplines – the arts, social sciences and humanities as they intersect with healthcare experiences, in various settings to exchange knowledge, share teaching/learning/evaluative strategies, and inquiry approaches; and to shape the future of health professional education and healthcare in this country.
 
Keynote Speakers: Drs. Alan Bleakley and Brian Goldman
 
Across North America, Europe, and elsewhere, health professional faculties have introduced opportunities to develop reflective capacity and narrative competence, and have also incorporated the arts and humanities to help shape the learning experiences and creative expression of future healers. Canadian medical, nursing and other health faculties have begun to help define this emerging field, and this conference provides an opportunity to discuss the role, potential impact, and contributions of the arts and humanities in medicine on a national level.
 
We are pleased to be linked with the 2011 Canadian Conference on Medical Education (CCME) conference (May 8 to 10, 2011) and the Wilson Centre of Excellence in Medical Education-hosted symposium Social Science Perspectives on Health Professions Education (May 6, 2011; featuring keynote speaker, medical sociologist Arthur Frank PhD.)
 
At the conclusion of this conference, participants will be able to:

  • Know how the arts, social sciences and humanities can better inform and enrich healthcare education in Canada
  • Be connected with colleagues, as a community of practitioners, with whom knowledge and educational strategies that integrate the humanities and health care can be exchanged
  • Generate ideas about how to utilize the arts and humanities in health professional education
