Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons professor named 2002 Guggenheim Fellow

Dr. Rita Charon, professor of clinical medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons (P&S), has been awarded a 2002 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship for her work in the sciences and humanities. Dr. Charon, who will use her grant to complete scholarly research in the field of narrative medicine, was chosen from an applicant pool of 2,800 to receive one of only 184 Guggenheim fellowships. The results of the annual competition were announced April 10 by Guggenheim Memorial Foundation president Joel Conarroe.

Dr. Charon, a 1978 graduate of Harvard Medical School and a practicing general internist, received a doctoral degree in English from Columbia University in 1999 and currently is the director of the narrative medicine program at P&S. A prolific researcher and scholar whose essays and reviews have appeared in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the Journal of the American Medical Association, and the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Charon has published and lectured extensively on linguistic studies of doctor-patient conversations, narrative competence in physicians and medical students, literary analyses of medical texts, narrative ethics, empathy in medical practice, and the impact of training in narrative writing on medical education. In addition, Dr. Charon is editor-in-chief of the journal Literature and Medicine and co-editor of the forthcoming Stories Matter: The Role of Narrative in Medical Ethics (Routledge).

In her capacity as a Guggenheim Fellow, Dr. Charon will complete work on a book entitled Narrative Medicine, which will probe the literary and narrative techniques through which physicians can achieve empathy for their patientssuch as personal reflection, nuanced interpretation, attuned listening, and expository writing.
