ANES 281: Medicine in Movies: The Illness Experience

Student lead:: This virtual seminar will introduce students to films, documentaries, and shorts with medical and bioethical themes. Viewings will encourage students to examine their own pre-conceptions and evaluate topics that elucidate illness as subjectively experienced by providers, patients and their families. Movies will be viewed first by students, then class will convene via Zoom for discussion. This type of close viewing will not only allow participants to better answer the existential questions that illness provokes - what does it meant to experience suffering? to heal as well as treat? to contemplate morality? - but also encourages these future providers to incorporate effective communication techniques into their practices.
