dotMD is a one-day meeting that exposes doctors to ideas occurring at the interfaces of medicine, the humanities and emerging technologies in healthcare. In doing so, dotMD aspires to generate a sense of curiosity, fun and passion about medicine in those attending.
Those attending dotMD 2017 will hear a medical presentation performed on piano by US psychiatrist and concert pianist Prof Richard Kogan, take part in a workshop on literature prescribing for medical problems, and enjoy a medical story-telling session with four Irish doctors. They will also hear updates on digital health, a discussion about replacing doctors with computers, and attend a ceramics exhibition influenced by dementia.
Fans of ‘The Moth’ podcast will enjoy a new dotMD medical story-telling session, with tales from the front lines of medicine from Dr Ciara Kelly, Dr Paul Reynolds, Dr Muiris Houston and Prof Brendan Kelly.
Dr Jay Baruch, US-based accident and emergency physician and author of two collections of short stories, What’s Left Out and Fourteen Stories, will also speak.
For full programme details and to register, go to www.dotmd.ie. Spaces are limited and the meeting has sold out early in previous years.
A medical student scholarship scheme, which will allow 10 medical students to attend, will be announced shortly.
DotMD is in its fifth year and is curated by Dr Ronan Kavanagh, Dr Houston and Dr Alan Coss.
