What was discussed during this
month's #HMIchat on #humanism in #meded? We were joined by Gold Foundation
scholar Meg Chisolm for a great chat.

Our 14th twitter chat began Wednesday March 1st and continued to Thursday March 2nd. This #hmichat focused on the teaching and practicing humanistic medicine. We were fortunate to have our colleague, Dr. Margaret Chisolm, facilitate this tweet chat. We discussed questions such as:

  • How do you characterize/define humanistic medicine?
  • What needs- if any- exist around current teaching & practice?
  • Technology is a double-edged sword—how have you used or observed others use digital tech (e.g., the EHR, social media) to help teach and practice humanistic medicine?
  • What opportunities exist- moving forward- to further harness digital tech for teaching/practice of humanistic medicine?

Please leave your feedback below! We hope to improve the value of these reflections.

Join our Harvard Macy community for the next tweet chat starting April 1st at 9 pm EST. We will discuss HMI Projects (current and previous cohorts)

Hosted by: Keith Wilson (Educators '16) and Mandi Sehgal (Educators '17)
