Writing Medicine and the Doctor-Writer|
|Course Cluster: Health Studies|
In this course we read a range of works across a variety of literary traditions, mainly by writers who were also medical practitioners (including Chekhov, Bulgakov, Lu Xun, William Carlos Williams, Che Guevara), but also nondoctors who write compellingly about medically-related subjects (Camus in THE PLAGUE, Tracy Kidder on Paul Farmer, Anne Fadiman on cultural clashes).
