Inside Higher Ed: With Narrative Medicine, Humanities Scholars Can Support Health Educators

Inside Higher Ed suggests that, in the wake of the crisis in the humanities, liberal arts students should pivot to programs such as Columbia University's M.S. in narrative medicine: "People with doctorates in the humanities possess transferable skills that are needed in other work domains, like health professions and education."

"The growth of a subspecialty in narrative medicine has provided both a pedagogical medium and a research analysis tool." The author referenced Columbia University's narrative medicine program as evidence of the "institutional vitality" of this emerging field at the intersection of literature and medicine.

Inside Higher Ed suggests that humanities students "imagine a variety [of] career paths that will engage their talents and reward them" – and, for some, narrative medicine might be the perfect fit.
