The Documenting Medicine program provides Duke physician residents with the tools and skills to produce documentary projects that explore patient experiences. “I think ultimately, we all went into medicine for the stories,” says internal medicine resident Mallika Dhawan. “Understanding these stories is what makes us better at our jobs. How can we treat our patients and help them achieve their goals if we don’t understand who they are and where they are coming from?” At this event, Dr. Dhawan and twelve other physician residents from a wide range of medical specialties—psychiatry, anesthesiology, pediatrics, geriatrics, oncology, and more—will share their projects with the public.

Wednesday, June 5, 6 p.m.–8 p.m.
The Center for Documentary Studies
1317 West Pettigrew Street, Durham, North Carolina

Documentary projects will be shared by Meera Balasubramanian, Elizabeth Bigger, Stephanie Collier, Tera Cushman, Mallikha Dhawan, Maria D’Souza, Kathleen Dunlap, Amber Hathcock, Lisa Jones, Viviana Martinez Bianchi, Erin O’Branski, Kristin Schroeder, and Lidia Vognar.

The Documenting Medicine program, led by Liisa Ogburn and John Moses, M.D., was created by the Duke University Medical Center and the Center for Documentary Studies, seeded with support from the Chancellor’s Innovation Fund.
