A weekly podcast about what you love about medicine and what you love outside of your career, hosted by Nick Andrews.
Nov 16, 2018
In this Episode, Nick Andrews (@tribnic) welcomes the first med student and the first muggle to join the program. Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia partnered with the Lantern Theater Company to offer a class that teachers staging, acting, and playwriting. The class is designed specifically for med students, current residents, attending physicians and any other medical professionals. The class eliminates hierarchy, encourages artistic exploration, and can lead to increased empathy when dealing with patients and their families. Nick, Luis, and Craig also recognize the similarities between medicine and art but also highlight what we can learn from different passions.
