I am a Clinical Professor of Emergency Physician, Singer-Songwriter, Poet, and teacher. For years I straddled the world between Science and Art until I finally realized that they are intimately connected and that this can be taught. I have been published in Annals of Emergency Medicine, JAMA, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and numerous online sites. I love teaching the importance of integrating art, writing, or music into medical education, and the importance of narrative in the therapeutic relationship.
Crisis in the Emergency Department. What is the answer?
