Don’t miss the RSM’s Open Section medical humanities conference which will focus on the relationships between literature, the humanities and healthcare. With renowned speakers in healthcare, literature and psychology, the day meeting will give delegates the opportunity to learn more about how the humanities has impacted medicine, plus there will be an opportunity to participate in a live discussion with Samuel Shem, one of literary medicine’s best known surviving authors, as well as Iain Bamforth, Janet Surrey and Deborah Bowman.

  • The role of the theatre in medical education
  • Staying human– lessons for clinician resilience & compassionate practice
  • How literature has impacted medicine and vice versa
  • The opportunity to meet and network with colleagues with an interest in the medical humanities
