"The Doctor as a Humanist" International Symposium
Universidad Anáhuac, Mexico City
October 28, 2020
October 29-31, 2020
Universidad Anáhuac México is pleased to welcome you to the Third International "The Doctor as a Humanist" symposium, where since 2017 (Mallorca) and 2019 (Moscow) we have been seeking to answer the question of whether medical humanities can transform 21st century medicine and how we can implement this change.
The third symposium seeks to consolidate the growth of this international movement based on promoting medical humanities as a means to inspiring humanism in the formation and daily practice of health professionals and medical students. However, we also look beyond the medical profession, as we aim to join forces with all those interested in, and convinced of, the importance of the humanities in medicine, be they scientists, artists, anthropologists or 3rd year medical students.
Our vision is to be as inclusive as possible in order to reach as many people as possible. We are convinced of the enormous need to re-humanize the medical sciences. Nearly three years ago we said that we aimed to “bring back the heart and soul to medicine”, and we believe in this now more than ever, for as the famous Mexican poet Octavio Paz said, we “Deserve our dream”.
So, if you believe that we do deserve to make our dream a reality come and join us in Mexico and help us build bridges between countries, between disciplines and between ages to restore the humanities to its rightful place at the centre of the medical profession.
