Pauline Chen - Swimming in the Sea: A Surgeon on Suffering
Center for Medical Humanities Oct 17 2019 | 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center of the National Academies of Science and Engineering
Few professions see as much human suffering as medicine, a calling devoted to caring for the ill. But in a field that also systematically depersonalizes dying, how do physicians react to and understand the suffering of their patients? Dr. Chen will draw on her own clinical experiences and on research from medicine and the social sciences and humanities to address these questions and to reconsider how the medical model might help us all suffer well.
