2019 Boyarsky Lecture - More Just, More Humane: Reimagining the Social Role of Medicine

January 24, 2019 - 5:45pm
Arno Kumagai, MD

The education and mentorship of future health practitioners play a critical role in their care of the ill and suffering. What does moral education look like? How can we develop a more unified approach to teaching and learning for societal significance? Dr. Kumagai will consider these questions and explore the concept of critical consciousness in teaching for equity and justice. He will show how stories, reflections, and dialogue can foster transformative learning and lead to transformation of the practice of medicine.

This lecture is being held in conjunction with the symposium Advancing an Anti-Racism Curriculum for Health Professional Education: Putting Knowledge into Practice, January 24-25, 2019.
