Become a Narrative Medicine Leader

Join the Northwest Narrative Medicine Collaborative for a personalized, interactive narrative medicine workshop. You will participate in large and small group activities designed to teach practical skills, and support collaboration and innovation among learners from diverse healthcare experiences. We welcome healthcare professionals, patients, caregivers, and artists who are advocates for telling and receiving stories of illness and health in our communities. At this workshop you will learn and practice narrative competence, contribute to and participate in narrative exercises, and develop narrative medicine activities to implement in your own health settings and communities. The training takes place from October 28-November 11, 2022. Registration and a full schedule is currently available.

This workshop is limited to 40 participants. Narrative Medicine Facilitator Training was originally planned as an in-person weekend event, but was reimagined as a unique online experience. We held our first online training in January 2021, and continue to adapt this experience as more in-person options open up across our cities. During the Fall 2022 course, we plan to offer an in-person cohort, as well as optional in-person activities in Portland, OR. Once registered, participants will have access to digital materials and support.

This program was made possible in part by a grant from Oregon Humanities and
the National Endowment for the Humanities, and support from the OHSU Division of Hospital Medicine.
