The Healer's Art is an elective course designed to address the "hidden curriculum" in medical school by identifying, strengthening, and cultivating the human dimensions of the practice of medicine. It was developed twelve years ago by Rachel Remen, M.D. at UCSF and has now been successfully replicated at other medical schools. This course adds a unique experience and approach to the professionalism curriculum.
