    GRAND ROUNDS: Dr. Gayatri Devi
              
    "The Spectrum of Hope"
    May 14, 2018
    4:15-5:45pm
    HSC, Lecture Hall 1 (directions)
    RSVP here

    Imagine finding a glimmer of good news in a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s. And imagine how that would change the outlook of the 5 million Americans who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, not to mention their families, loved ones, and caretakers. A neurologist who’s been specializing in dementia and memory loss for more than 20 years, Dr. Gayatri Devi rewrites the story of Alzheimer’s by defining it as a spectrum disorder—like autism, Alzheimer’s is a disease that affects different people differently. She encourages people who are worried about memory impairment to seek a diagnosis, because early treatment will enable doctors and caregivers to manage the disease more effectively through drugs and other therapies.

    "The Archetypes of Medicine: A Job Description for the 21 st Century"
     
    February 15, 2018
    Medicine is facing an identity crisis, one that might find resolution by revisiting a past rich in multifaceted individuals who transcended the strict definition of ‘doctor’, excelled in other fields of human endeavor, and showed us different ways of being physicians. This presentation will review twelve archetypes that have been part of the profession since its inception, but that, as of late, might have been forgotten. It will then focus on three archetypes: the physician as poet (John McCrae); the physician as humanist (William Osler); and the physician as philosopher (Rita Levi Montalcini). Our goal is to elicit discussion and introspection, with the premise that being a doctor ought to be something larger than being a mere technician. If our premise is accepted, then the next step would be to identify those personal traits that made those archetypes possible, so that we can start both recruiting for them and then nurturing them during training.

    Human First! A Workshop Inspired by Medical Clowning
    Michael Christensen
    October 26, 2017

    Medical clowning is a therapeutic method aimed at helping children and adult patients through interactive humor, folly, and playful behavior. The skills of successful hospital clowns include the ability to rapidly read audiences and assess environments, to respond to subtle physical and emotional cues, to create genuine contact, to give patients, parents and staff the feeling that they are there specifically for them, to pay attention, in short, to be totally present.

    Medical Clowning: An Introduction
    Atay Citron, PhD
    October 26, 2017

    Medical clowning is a therapeutic method aimed at helping children and adult patients through interactive humor, folly, and playful behavior. Since its inception as a profession in New York in 1986, medical clowning has become an intrinsic part of medical treatment in children’s hospitals and pediatric wards in the U.S. (including 12 East Coast hospitals, among them Yale- New Haven, Johns Hopkins, and Memorial Sloan Kettering), in the majority of hospitals in Europe, Australia and Israel, and is spreading throughout the world.
