Department of Humanities Grand Rounds Presentation: Frederic Hafferty, PhD, Mayo Clinic
March 10 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
In his lecture, “The Enigmatic (unbearable) Lightness of (being) Humanities in Medical Education,” presenter Frederic W. Hafferty, PhD, will take a critical look at the role of the humanities in medical education by exploring the potential for gaps between what is organizationally stated and what actually happens. Using session-generated data, Hafferty will help to unpack the role of the humanities at Penn State College of Medicine along with the potential for the for-profit medical education industry to hijack the learning environments of medical education.
Dr. Hafferty is professor of medical education, associate director of the Program for Professionalism and Values and Associate Dean for Professionalism at Mayo Clinic’s College of Medicine.
