We have hosted a number of lectures by documentarians who have completed a project of relevance to physicians, nurses, social workers, physician assistants, and other caregivers, as well as patients.

All lectures are available through iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/itunes-u/documenting-medicine/id503743746), as well as on our Documenting Medicine Channel (http://vimeo.com/channels/documentingmedicine). Talks last from 20 to 45 minutes. Some talks are by physician residents who have completed work through this program.

Enhancing My Medical Education Through Photography,” by Dr. John Moses

“The teenagers I photographed taught me a lot, even as many of them struggled with serious challenges in their own lives. Having gone out to meet with them in their world, I came away with no neat formulations about teenage pregnancy but rather a richer, more accurate context in which to see them, and I hope, better understand their experience.” – John Moses, M.D.

“People learn using different modalities, and for some people the visual route opens the door to understanding. Even richer than teaching using documentary methods is the experience of the individual who prepares the materials, since documentary studies by their nature include rich human interactions. We learn when we take part, whether as the subject, the documentarian, or the viewer. This is a unusually meaningful project in which I'm very glad to participate." - Dr. Ross McKinney, Director of the Trent Center
