Digital Transform MedEd event - Everything except the medicine: A Medical Student’s Autoethnography on Medical Humanities and Clinical Placement
After a transformative year out studying medical humanities, John Humm returned to clinical placement in late 2020. Short reflective pieces written during this time illustrate ethical tensions the speaker experienced upon his return to the wards. These formed the basis of his meta-reflective, autoethnographic research written over the summer one year later.

In this 90-minute Digital Transform MedEd event, John will show the practical value of medical humanities from the medical student perspective, but also the disconnect between the ideals of medical humanities in the seminar room and the reality of everyday clinical experience.

John Humm is a current final-year Medical Student at Hull-York Medical School, an alumnus of Imperial College London’s Humanities, Philosophy and Law intercalated BSc and has a special interest in medical humanities education research.
