Have you ever pulled a sicky or pretended to be ill? Acclaimed author Leslie Jamison, a medical actor does this on a daily basis as she attempts to teach medical students how to express empathy towards patients.
Join Leslie as she discusses her new book ‘The Empathy Exams’ at St George’s, University of London. Leslie’s work questions how we understand each other and describes her time as an actor working with medical students. You will get an opportunity to learn about these new and innovative ways that our future healthcare professionals are learning their trade at St George’s and around the world and get a chance to meet an author described by the New York Times as ‘Extraordinary’.
This is a free public event, open to all and part of the St George’s, University of London series The Art of Medicine which aims to highlight the ways that arts, humanities, medicine and science work together.
