In the 1970s, three-fourths of Americans reported having trust in medical professionals. Today, only about a quarter report confidence in the healthcare system, according to the New England Journal of Medicine. As medicine continues to advance, so does the need to listen to patients with narrative competency.
Columbia University’s Master of Science in Narrative Medicine prepares health professionals, writers, advocates, and scholars to apply the skills and values of narrative understanding to improve outcomes for both patients and caregivers, and to investigate issues pertinent to health and healthcare in a rigorous transdisciplinary setting. This flagship graduate program is the first of its kind, and is a worldwide leader. Graduates are poised to become educators and leaders in healthcare and beyond.
CPA: Part-Time | Online Asynchronous | Up to 3 Years
In addition to the full-time or part-time M.S., the program offers a Certification of Professional Achievement in Narrative Medicine.
