You are invited to attend a Disability and Medicine Seminar Series made possible, in part by the Josiah Macy Foundation. This seminar will take place in March and April and will be offered in person as well as online synchronous via WebEx. Lunch will be provided for those attending in person. Students completing all five sessions (in person or virtually), will receive a Disability and Medicine Certificate.
Overview of Session Content
Sessions are designed with an aim of exposing students to critical philosophies and approaches in working with patients that have disabilities. The seminar will broaden students’ understanding of disability and offer competing perspectives designed to promote critical thinking around issues of diversity. Students will be encouraged to move beyond the narrow, medical conceptions of disability (medical model) as a disease to be cured or a problem to be fixed by offering competing models of disability (social model and biopsychosocial model) that value human variation. Students will be challenged to see the patient as a unique person with individual needs.
