H436: Empathy, from Literature to Medicine in Rainstorm Spring 2020 (May. 30 - 31, 2020)
Some research has shown that literature can increase empathy! People employ their empathy skills all the time: readers put themselves in the shoes of a book protagonist. Doctors combine all of the clues the patient has given them to arrive at a diagnosis. In this class, we will analyze literature excerpts to gain insight into characters' thought processes. We will then apply the skills we've learned to conduct a mock patient interview.
