AFTEC is a community partner in the HKUMed Medical Humanities Programme which is a credit-bearing part of the medical curriculum. Through an imaginative encounter with the arts, medical students can explore the human aspect of medical science through engaging in theatre and movement.
This was an unusual and fun class experience and I enjoyed watching my classmates acting. At the same time, this was an excellent opportunity to practise breaking bad news to patients and their families with the right tone and body language.
I enjoyed the performance part of the workshop. I felt like it brought out my creativity and allowed me to understand other people’s feelings and communicate with others.
