The Cleveland Medical Library Association’s 2018 annual lecture, titled “By Any Other Name: How Medical Humanities and Bioethics are Reshaping Medical School Curricula—A Panel Discussion,” will take place Thursday, April 12, at 6 p.m. in Allen Memorial Medical Library, Ford Auditorium.
Designed for premedical students and others interested in the medical humanities and bioethics, the lecture will feature a panel discussion examining how those subjects have been incorporated into medical school curricula in Cleveland and nationwide. The lecture will be followed by a free reception and Programs Showcase.
Program directors, faculty and students from the School of Medicine, Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine, Northeast Ohio Medical University and Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine will be on hand to answer questions about their programs and to address the topic of “medical humanities” from their unique perspectives.
Following the panel discussion, students will have ample opportunity to ask questions at the Programs Showcase during the free reception. The panelists will be joined by other medical students and faculty from the four featured medical schools and Case Western Reserve University’s Medicine, Society, and Culture graduate program.
These representatives will answer questions and provide information about their medical school programs and medical humanities pathways, as well as give advice regarding the application process.
