Differing Ways of Seeing - What Medical Humanities Can Offer

Differing Ways of Seeing - What Medical Humanities Can Offer
2018-07-05

A small cohort of Aberdeen Medical students began the programme of the first Scottish Medical Humanities summer event “Differing ways of seeing: What medical humanities can offer” last week in the beautiful venue of St Cecilia’s Hall, Concert room and Music Museum, Edinburgh. 

 The Scottish Medical Humanities project aims to enrich the experience of healthcare practitioners, students and trainees.  The event was an evening of performance and discussion to celebrate humanities in healthcare education. 

The students presented work that showcased their talent and achievements and the breadth of provision we have in medical humanities.  The strength and roles of women featured strongly in their work which included John’s creative writing ‘Mother Knows Best’, Rachael’s “History of Scottish Women’s Hospitals in WW1”, Gillian’s artwork “Friends Consoling Each Othe”’ and Despoina’s presentation on “Kangaroo mother care in sub-Saharan Africa”. 

There was an exhibition of student artwork and the work of Jo MacDonald, the artist in residence in the Anatomy Department who will now be undertaking an interdisciplinary  PhD in the department.
