History of Medicine

Critical Medical Humanities

in recent years, we witnessed the inconvenience of interconnecting medical education and humanities. The gap between how different faculties interpret humanities and the ways in which they imagine how humanities should be taught remains wide. I provide these six keywords for the consideration of educators and curriculum development: identity, gaze, narratives, cultural/structural competency, citizenship, uncertainty. At The University of Hong Kong, I convene the following workshops that are informed by theories and practices of medical history, sociology and anthropology.
