Medical humanities and arts have broadened my perspectives and insights into understanding and connecting with patients, it helps me appreciate the cultural, historical, and sociological factors that influence health and illness. Additionally, being immersed in the field continues to develop my communication skills as well as empathy. In my future career, I hope to build on these skills and create a trusting relationship with my patients, leading to better treatment outcomes. Lastly, engaging with the humanities and the arts has served as a source of stress relief from school, and provided me with an outlet for creativity and self-expression, preventing burnout and maintaining my mental well-being. -Celina Yang, GR1 (MSTP)
