About the InitiativeDespite the vast advances in the biomedical sciences, a leading concern among patients is that their physicians lackcommunication skills and empathy. Arts and humanities as educational tools have the potential to reduce burnout anddepression among health care providers, improve professionalism, reflection and empathy, foster humanism, enhanceperspective, sharpen students’ analytic and diagnostic skills, and improve teamwork and communication to maintain a“culture of safety,” among other goals.We strive to embed the arts into the culture and environment of HMS and its affiliated hospitals thereby enhancing andhumanizing the experience of students, faculty, and patients. We also aim to foster creativity and scholarship in thevarious domains of the medical arts and humanities. We welcome involvement of HMS faculty and students in planningactivities and in every aspect of bringing the arts and humanities into our medical community. We have monthlymeetings and offer a variety of actives, which include writing seminars, open mic sessions, musical gatherings, dance,museum trips, thirdspace (student writing website), and trips to the theatre, retreats, and more.MissionTo foster creativity and scholarship in the arts and medical humanities at HMS and its affiliated hospitals, to promote acommunity of faculty and students interested in the arts and humanities, and to enhance patient care throughreflection and compassion.Goals To develop arts and humanities as disciplines of expression, scholarship, and engagement To serve as a resource for the faculty and student community To establish HMS as a national leader in the Medical Humanities To complement existing bioethics and social medicine programs at HMSArts and Humanities Initiative at Harvard Medical School 2017-2018 Annual ReportPage 3 of 62
