“Clinical Rationality: Lessons from Doctor Dolittle” – Bioethics Seminar Series, Thursday 28 February, 5:00-6:00 pm.

Posted on | Back to News & Announcements

Kathryn Montgomery, Julia & David Uihlein Professor of Medical Humanities and Bioethics Professor of Medicine,  Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Doctors, like all humans, exercise their reasoning and judgment through stories, not merely through numbers.  Dr. Montgomery draws on her exploration of clinical thinking, from her books Doctors’ Stories: The Narrative Structure of Medical Knowledge (Princeton 1991) & How Doctors Think: Clinical Judgment and the Practice of Medicine (Oxford 2006), to examine clinical reasoning in medicine.

Attendees are invited (but not required) to read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “A Study in Scarlet” before the seminar.  The story may be downloaded, at no cost, as an ebook or PDF, from project Gutenberg <www.gutenberg.org>.

Thursday, 28th February – 5:00-6:00 pm

Greene Hall, Room 308, Reynolda Campus, Wake Forest University

Reception to follow.
