Narrative X Medicine


Narrative X Medicine


Narrative Medicine is based on the principles of attention, representation, and affiliation.

The application of Narrative Medicine is manifold. Grounded in narrative competency and humility, it is a practice, a pedagogy, an analytical perspective, and a burgeoning field related to health humanities, medical anthropology, and other intersectional disciplines.
