The Medicine and Magic Seminars: Teaching Behind the Curtain and Beyond the Trick


For the past eight years Dr. Rosenkranz has been teaching humanities seminars on Medicine and Magic at Feinberg and elsewhere. Course participants range from first-year medical students through late career physicians. What can be learned about the medical profession when viewed through the lens of theatrical magic? How can magic be used to enhance professional identity and excellence in medicine? Dr. Rosenkranz describes the content and context of his courses and invites us to reflect on the role of magic in medicine.
