Celebrating the Arts in the Physician’s Life Humanities Theatre – Encore, Encore!

Posted · Add Comment

Join your colleagues for the grand finale of FMF’s Humanities Theatre program on Saturday, with three interactive sessions to stretch, refresh, and inspire you!

Calling all perfectionists! You can’t go wrong with Failing Better: Learning the art of error. Through the playful and collaborative vehicle of improv theatre, this session faces head on the growing body of evidence that the perfectionist traits that might have served us well in training can contribute to practitioner burnout and poor patient care. Come and have a blast at this improv event!

Narrative enables physicians to empathize with patients, process their own practices, connect with other health care providers, and open up discourse with the public. Using Creative Writing to Explore Medical Practice is a workshop where you will be invited to partake in some creative writing exercises and explore the practice of medicine through fiction. Participants will have time to write, and then to share and discuss their work with the group.

FMF’s Humanities Theatre concludes with Pronoia: Using music, poetry, and photography to uplift, inspire, and feel good. Built around 10 original songs and photos from around the world that celebrate human possibility, this session highlights the health benefits of thinking and feeling optimistic. Participants are led in interactive exercises intended to tap into their own creativity for their own self-healing and to inspire their patients and community. End your morning on a positive note!
