When not writing, I am a practicing psychiatrist in Minnesota. I lead the corresponding chapter of the Stanford Pegasus Physician Writers. I have led storytelling and writing workshops at the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, The University of Minnesota medical school and at The Examined Life Conference in Iowa City. I have special interest in narrative medicine and integrating writing, poems and literature into therapy and psychiatry practice.
I am working on a collection of essays about medical training and psychiatry.
Find me tweeting about medical humanities @rebeccacgk.
