The Healer's Art is a course based on the work of Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D., that is designed to explore the art of medicine with medical students. It has been offered as an elective to second-year medical students at the University of Minnesota Medical School's Duluth campus since 2003. The course leads students into dialogue about what, beyond science and technology, they as physicians will be able to offer patients. It also encourages participating faculty members to rediscover their passion for medicine. This article describes the course, the reasons for its creation, and the lessons students and faculty take away from it.
