Virtual Narrative Workshop
Alternating Wednesdays throughout the summer, from 5-6 pm: Register once and drop in as often as you can!
August 5 and 19
Would you like to join in conversation with your BUSM/BMC colleagues and explore in writing some of your recent experiences? Paired with close reading of poetry, which invites introspection and sharpens attention to language, reflective writing offers the opportunity to excavate your own experience and bring the abstract into form on the page.
The BUSM CME office and Sarah Wingerter, MD, Director of the BUMC Narrative Writing Program, are offering a Virtual Narrative Workshop on alternating Wednesdays, from 5-6 PM, for clinicians of all programs. We will share stories, read poetry, and do some free-writing. No prior experience with writing or poetry needed. No prep needed--just have a pen and paper handy.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email about joining the meeting.
Target Audience: Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Nurses, and other healthcare providers.
Overall learning outcome/objective: Learners will gain confidence in their ability to write reflectively.
Boston University School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Boston University School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
