Dr. Michael Green asks his med students to doodle more in class
Fourth-year medical students at Penn State College of Medicine are not only allowed to doodle in class, but encouraged to. Dr. Michael J. Green teaches an elective course called "Graphic Storytelling and Medical Narratives" in which his students document their own experiences in medical school using short comics.
It's much more than an outlet for creative expression or a way to blow off a little steam: graphic medicine can have a profound impact on how patients, doctors, and doctors-in-training see themselves and the human body.
