MEH 490-40 Medical Humanities Clinical Experience
This course is a clinical experience involving 100 hours at an approved site. Interactions with both patients and health-care professionals are important for students to develop some appreciation for working with people who are ill or infirm, for the teamwork expected of health professionals and for the seriousness of taking responsibility for the lives of others. Students maintain a reflective journal throughout the 100-hour clinical experience. The journal will include a running log of hours as well as reflections on medical humanities, the clinical experience and selected readings. A final reflection paper will be used for students to synthesize their health-care-related service experiences with their knowledge of the medical humanities. Students will enroll during their junior or senior year and must have completed two core courses and one elective prior to the clinical experience. Students must also meet with a coordinator a term prior to the clinical experience.
