Narrative Medicine Rounds are lectures or readings presented by scholars, clinicians, or writers engaged in work at the intersection of narrative and health care. Rounds are held on the first Wednesday of each month (September to May) from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the Columbia University Medical Center Faculty Club, followed by a reception. Rounds are free and open to the public; no RSVP is necessary. Students, staff, faculty, patients, friends, and interested others are warmly welcome to join us.

This edition of Rounds will feature Dr. Arthur Kleinman, Esther and Sidney Rabb Professor, Department of Anthropology, Harvard University and Professor of Medical Anthropology in Global Health and Social Medicine and Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School. He has authored, coauthored, or edited dozens of books, including What Really Matters: Living a Moral Life amidst Uncertainty and Danger (Oxford University Press, 2007), Deep China: The Moral Life of the Person – What Anthropology and Psychiatry Tell Us about China Today (University of California Press, 2011), and Japan’s Wartime Medical Atrocities: Comparative Inquiries in Science, History, and Ethics (Routledge, 2011).
