About the Event
The Humanities, Health and Medicine program is excited to host a panel discussion on the theme of “Liberal Arts and Medical Practice.” The panelists will discuss the role liberal arts training plays in, for example, how they conceive their mission as doctors, how they think about their professional identity and how they practice medicine in clinical settings.
Three of the four panelists — Ganesh Palapattu, M.D., FACS; Rebecca Teng, M.D.; and Craig Hurwitz, M.D. — were undergraduate majors in UT’s College of Liberal Arts who are now practicing physicians. The fourth panelist, Michelle Raji, is a current fourth-year student at Dell Medical School who majored in English and Creative Writing as an undergraduate.
The panel will include ample time for audience Q&A and discussion and will be followed by a reception.
