POSITIVE EXPOSURE Elective:
Positive Exposure (PE) and its film program, FRAME (Faces Redefining the Art of Medical Education) weaves critical medical information, with personal and lived experiences, for healthcare professionals in training, clinicians, families and communities. Each film, 8-12 minutes in length, provides a greater understanding of the most commonly seen diagnoses by demonstrating hallmark characteristics of a particular condition, while modeling an attitude of respect for the humanity of the patients.
This elective will provide students with the opportunity to participate in the creation of a Positive Exposure FRAME (Faces Redefining the Art of Medical Education) film. In Phase 1, Students will explore partnerships with specialists and advocacy organizations, the research process, prompt development and interview techniques. In Phase 2, students will participate in a virtual forum that will enable students to ask questions of specialists and an advocacy group, as well as interview individuals and families living with a particular genetic condition. In Phase 3, students will examine transcripts and a rough film edit of virtual interviews, and discuss the pertinent details to be included in the final film.
