Refresh your skills, rekindle your enthusiasm
Whether your original medical education lacked a humanities component, or you want to refresh your perspective and your skills, you’ll find what you need at Dalhousie. As a medical or health professional, you’re welcome to take part in any of our many humanities-focused activities.
Attend a humanities-related event
Residents and fellows are welcome at any and all humanities-related events.
Complete a humanities-related elective
Residents can chose to do a humanities-related elective. Previous examples include:
- reflective practice through a musical lense
- theatre as an innovative tool
- paintings as a reflection of the patients’ illness experiences
If interested, speak with your program director about doing a humanities elective and then discuss your proposal with the Medical Humanities-HEALS director.
The Humanities-HEALS program provides sessions for the medical education resident elective course. The focus is on practical ways to include the arts and humanities into teaching.
