Why Doctors Write: A Documentary
Why Doctors Write: Finding Humanity in Medicine is an upcoming documentary film about the intersection of medicine and literature, created by Emmy award-winning producer/director Ken Browne. Among many themes, the film documents the tradition and motivation of physician-writers, how art is joining science to become a part of modern medical education, and why literature groups help both physicians and patients. The film connects the current physician movement in literature and writing to a renewed sense of humanism in medicine. The documentary is supported by the Arnold P. Gold Foundation. Watch the first trailer for Why Doctors Write below, which features writer and NYU physician Dr. Danielle Ofri, who is editor-in-chief of the Bellevue Literary Review, a literary magazine published by NYU Langone Medical Center.
