MED 219SI: Being Mortal II: Approaching Serious Illness

This elective offers an opportunity for MD and PA students to improve their ability to engage in effective and compassionate conversations with patients facing serious illnesses. The course will feature palliative care physicians, oncologists, spiritual care providers, and hospice staff, and provide students with early exposure to concepts in palliative medicine, hospice care, and end-of-life care, which are otherwise given little emphasis in the core curriculum. Students will learn practical skills in serious illness conversations with patients, through case-based sessions involving peer-to-peer, peer-to-instructor, and peer-to-patient role play. Relevant topics in leadership, psychology, sociology, and professionalism will also be covered. In addition, students taking the course for 2 credits will have the opportunity to participate in on-site visits to hospices, nursing facilities, assisted-living facilities, and adult day health care facilities. For more information please contact Henry Bair (hbair@stanford.edu) or Paul Horak (pwhorak@stanford.edu).
