MED 219: What Patients and Families Want You to Know About Becoming Their Doctor

You will learn directly from patients and families about whole-person care, including topics such as compassion, challenging conversations, shared decision-making and end-of-life care. Patients, families, hospital staff and medical students will co-teach this course. The goal is to develop knowledge that enables you to keep the perspective and needs of patients, families, and personal caregivers as a primary focus, while operating within the complex reality of practicing medicine. By the end, you will have sharpened your ability to partner with patients and families as part of their care team and develop a more meaningful practice.
