The Literature and Medicine Track is a longitudinal academic track designed for students interested in engaging the intersection of literature, narrative studies, medical narratives, and medicine. The aim of this track is to improve narrative competency and communication skills, leading to greater comfort deciphering patient stories; but no less importantly, this track aims to improve the students’ quality of life.
