Narrative Medicine fortifies clinical practice with the narrative competence to recognize, absorb, metabolize, interpret, and be moved by the stories of illness. Through narrative training, the Program in Narrative Medicine helps physicians, academics, nurses, social workers, mental health professionals, chaplains, social workers, and all those interested in the intersection between narrative and medicine improve the effectiveness of care by developing these skills with patients and colleagues. Columbia University Program in Narrative Medicine’s research and outreach missions are conceptualizing, evaluating, and spear-heading these ideas and practices nationally and internationally. Lenoir-Rhyne University is honored to support the Narrative Medicine practice in Western North Carolina.
