Please join us in Alkek N315 on Wednesday, February 21, from 4:30-5:30pm for a film and discussion presented by BCM’s Program in Narrative Medicine. We’re honored to host filmmaker Kaisu Koski, whose new film “Scenes of Disclosure” explores the role of standardized patients in medical education. We will watch her 25 minute film and discuss how standardized patients can help and hurt our growth as doctors. And yes, there will be pizza.

And if you really like this subject and want to read a great essay in anticipation of the event, check out “The Empathy Exams” by Leslie Jamison—a standardized patient’s tell-all—which you can find here:
