2013 Upcoming Lectures at School of Medicine, Hofstra and Feinstein Institute

2013 Upcoming Lectures and Events 

April 10

Narrateur: Reflections on Caring shares art, photography and narrative writings

The second issue of the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine’s literary journal Narrateur: Reflections on Caring, will be released on April 10 at 5 p.m. at an event that will include selected readings by many of the faculty and student authors. The creation of the medical journal stands as a symbol of the School of Medicine’s commitment to self expression, reflection, compassion and respect for the patient-physician relationship.

Narrateur publishes works -- fiction, non-fiction, poetry, photography or illustration -- by students, faculty and employees of the North Shore-LIJ Health System, Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine and Hofstra University.

Narrative reflection is a part of the curriculum at the School of Medicine alongside the basic and clinical sciences. It serves the explicit goal of achieving insight, personal growth and, ultimately, more humanistic and compassionate medical practice.

Narrateur is published by the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine and the North Shore-LIJ Health System. Jamie Talan, an award-winning science writer and assistant professor of science education at the School of Medicine, is editor-in-chief of the literary journal.
