Maine Arts & Humanities in Medicine Seminar
The Maine Arts & Humanities in Medicine Seminar
The Maine Arts & Humanities in Medicine Seminar invites your participation in our second season of weekly discussions in the arts, humanities, and healthcare. The Seminar is held on Thursday afternoons from 3:00 to 5:30 PM EDT during the University of Maine academic year. Sessions may be accessed in person or by Zoom, and all sessions are recorded. Because the seminar is not only didactic but experiential and conversational, class size is limited.
The intended audience is instructors, graduate students, and practitioners in the arts, humanities, and healthcare. The seminar may be taken for academic or continuing education credit; credits may be applied to our year-long certificate program or a terminal degree. Topics include “the doctor’s art,” reflective writing, narrative health, “two-eyed seeing,” implicit bias, healthcare disparities, healing environments, “the extended mind,” medical ethics, and arts in medicine.
