Murmurs: Stories from our Journey in Medicine

Murmurs: Stories from our Journey in Medicine

By Divya Bhatia, Qiuwei Yang, Dr. Hugh Silk
This narrative medicine podcast explores how health providers and trainees think about their experiences in medicine. Not about how they make diagnoses, but how they relate to their patients and what makes them tick. Each episode interviews someone from UMass Medical School who has written a poem or essay to learn about them and their reflection. We hope this podcast inspires others to become more reflective practitioners as well. Reach us at murmursumassmed@gmail.com.
