Narrative Medicine Workshop

Columbia Global Centers | Istanbul organised a workshop on the groundbreaking topic of Narrative Medicine on February 21 in its office. The workshop was led by Dr. Figen Bıyık, MD, MSc in Narrative Medicine, and graduate fellow at Columbia University. It is a part of Dr. Bıyık's fellowship project, which aims to introduce Narrative Medicine as a new field at the Istanbul University Faculty of Medicine and then create a Narrative Medicine-based curriculum that would educate the medical students. Dr. Rita Charon, MD, Professor of Medicine, and founder and Executive Director of the Program in Narrative Medicine at Columbia University, also joined the workshop via video-conference from New York.
