Department of Family and Social Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine

Narrative Medicine for Residents

 As part of the Family Medicine Conference Series, Paul Gross, MD, Assistant Professor, Department of Family and Social Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center, leads narrative medicine sessions with residents in Montefiore’s Family Medicine Residency Training Program every other month.

Residents are encouraged to discuss and process their clinical experiences through writing, using the personal narrative as a way to keep in touch with themselves and work through responses to difficult experiences in their medical training. Topics covered include stress, loss, and balancing work and personal life.

Pulse—voices from the heart of medicine

 “I don’t just read Pulse, I adore it...The supply of compelling, often poetic accounts is the best around. It is a fabulous resource...”

- Donald Berwick, MD
Former Administrator, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)

Pulse is a free online publication and community that invites patients and healthcare professionals to share their healthcare experiences. Each Friday, Pulse sends its readers a first-person story or poem that captures, in personal and often poignant terms, the story of healthcare today.
