Course Description 

We began The Healer’s Art course here at the Duluth campus of The University of MN Medical School in 2003. It has run for twenty successful years, and will be offered again for second year medical students in the fall of 2023-24. The course is directed by Dr. Jennifer Pearson, Associate Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Biobehavioral Health in Duluth. Some of the logistics of our adaptation of The Healer’s Art are as follows:
