Description: This Interprofessional MS1 elective will bring the resources of the medical humanities and ethics to bear on the twin pandemics of COVID-19 and systemic racism. All students will participate in one of several monthly evening small groups led by 1-2 faculty. Some will focus on historical and contemporary narratives related to epidemics. Others will be more experiential; for example, students could complete a scholarly or creative project with oral history, documentary photography, or another form of artistic expression. Hours can also be earned through Trent Center events open to all MS1 students, such as interest groups in ethics and history of medicine; or book clubs/film discussions related to the course themes. Students who complete at least 20 elective hours from these activities will receive a notation on their transcript.
