Teaching, learning, and practicing compassionate care
In 2012, the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare awarded a $50,000 grant to the Medical School to help integrate additional elements of compassion-centered care into the medical curriculum. As part of the grant, six medical students were awarded Schwartz fellowships to work with faculty members to design and implement projects related to compassion in medicine. The six fellows are Ana-Maria Dumitru ('15), Anna Huh ('15), Khushboo Jhala ('16), Nicole Vilardo ('14), Shelsey Weinstein ('16), and Mengyi Zha ('16).
Below, some of the Schwartz fellows talk about why the fellowship is important to them and the projects they will work on during their year as fellows.
