Rita Charon, MD, PhD

Narrative medicine as a relative newcomer continues to attract serious attention among health care professionals, despite the puzzlement of medical insiders who wonder what this alien creature is. Rita Charon, MD, PhD, founding director of the new program in narrative medicine at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, offers a clear description: she uses the term narrative medicine to mean medicine practiced with “narrative skills.” where “The sick need people who can understand their diseases, treat their medical problems, and accompany them through their illnesses.”
