Graphic Medicine introduces the discipline of the Medical Humanities to a non-specialist audience through the medium of comics! Graphic narratives are a bold and innovative way to convey the personal and subjective experience of sickness. They are a democratic and egalitarian form that empowers individuals to reflect on the cultural construction of health and sickness. Under the guidance of an expert in Medical Humanities, you will learn how to design and write your own graphics and discuss themes such as: the social construction of illness; stigma and taboo in healthcare; doctor-patient relations; empathy, pathography and narrative medicine.
