The Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California is accepting applications for their Master of Science in Narrative Medicine program.
The Narrative Medicine program is a one-year (on campus) program designed to strengthen and to reshape the ways institutions and individuals understand the relationships among clinical medicine, public health, and social justice, as well as to reaffirm and learn from the intimate, interpersonal experiences of the clinical encounter.
The MS in Narrative Medicine program is not only an excellent gap year option for pre-health students who have a strong foundation in the sciences, but it is also a unique opportunity for students in the humanities, arts, and social sciences who are interested in the ethical implications of narrative and storytelling for individual and community wellness and the clinical encounter between doctor and patient.
You can learn more and apply here. Applications are due by January 15th, 2021. For more information or to sign up for virtual info sessions, email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also learn more about narrative medicine by checking out this Ted Talk.
