Welcome to the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health Healer’s Art Elective!
This elective is offered to first- and second-year medical students interested in exploring themes of humanity in medicine. Specifically, the course provides a space for dialogue related to the following topics:
- Discovering and Nurturing Your Wholeness

Embracing the Discovery Model of Learning, the Healer’s Art elective hosts conversations in which students and faculty are all co-learners and co-teachers. The five course sessions involve a combination of personal reflection, small group sharing, and large group learning, storytelling, and discussion.
Sessions are three hours in length, and 4 out of the 5 sessions must be attended to obtain credit. To register for this 1-credit course, use Oasis Code 370-711.
