Enhancing Humanism and Professionalism

February 25, 2016: A highly motivated group of clinician-educators at the Cumming School of Medicine, who have been recognized by their peers and students as outstanding educators, met weekly over three months to discuss how best to teach and convey humanism and professionalism in patient care. To integrate and further reflect on their learning from these meetings, they engaged in creating a “self-portrait” — art pieces representing their reflections from the course.

Starting February 25, these pieces will be on display around Foothills Campus. Gallery

Soft words with eyes met
A patient feels connected
Art of medicine

Sean Fair, MD
R1 RCPS Emergency Medicine

Dr. Fair's haiku was prompted by working with and learning from very respected and skilled Humanistic physician. In the Emergency Department, the health care teams sees many patients on their 'worst day ever,' and the team is very aware of the constraint of time. His mentor taught him that Humanism need not be practiced alongside medicine using just words, but through all senses. Sound, appropriate touch, and emotive expression are all elements that can be made use of in clinical care. The haiku was a reminiscence of the many interactions Dr. Fair has taken part in.
