Learn to use creative writing as a professional tool. In this session, we will explore ways to use creative writing (fiction, nonfiction, poetry) in your daily practice, to help stave off burnout, connect with your personal and professional goals, and to build a stronger rapport with your patients. The course will consist of several short writing exercises and discussion.
