Hurrah for Narrative Medicine!
The other day I was flipping through a recent New Yorker and came across a quarter-page ad for the new MS in Narrative Medicine at Columbia. Pretty cool!
In other NM news, I was recently given, as compensation for my work with the Literature & Medicine program, a nice budget for new books. I've had fun unpacking them in my office this past week: physican/patient memoirs, novels and poetry collections about medicine, medical history, texts about medical anthropology. I now have the beginning of a solid medical-humanities library, and I can't wait to read all this stuff!
