Happy Monday! The blog – specifically the Twitter Directory – has received a crazy amount of attention over the weekend, so welcome to all and thanks for browsing! Be assured, there is plenty of work to still be done here – if you have ideas, let me know.
That said, I just wanted to take a moment to plug an upcoming MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) that is highly relevant to graphic medicine: Medicine and the Arts: Humanising Healthcare. The course is being offered freely from the University of Capetown through the Future Learn platform, with the opportunity to purchase a certificate of completion. If you’ve ever taken a MOOC through Coursera, EdX, etc., Future Learn is more-or-less the same system.
The course is laid out into six themes within medical humanities – to which narrative medicine and graphic medicine belong – and looks like it will serve as a good introduction to the field. I personally am looking forward to some great discussion among the participants! If you have a few hours a week over the next couple of months, join me (and hundreds of others) in this neat opportunity to explore the medical humanities with people from all across the globe!
Even if you don’t have time to commit to the course itself, you can follow along on Twitter using the hashtag #FLMedArts!
