Arts and humanities education is widespread in undergraduate but almost non-existent in postgraduate medical education where it is arguably more helpful. This book fills that gap. It covers a wide range of arts and humanities including film, theatre, narrative, visual art, history, ethics and social sciences. It also touches on interprofessional education, research in the medical humanities and fundraising. It is not only a hands-on guide to creating arts- and humanities-base programming, but provides literature reviews and a theoretical discussion on each topic. Each chapter has appendices with lesson plans and resources.
