Description

Donald K. Buffmire Visiting Lectureship in Medicine
In conjunction with Mini-Medical School

The Midnight Meal Revisited


“For me, creative writing relies heavily on reflection, the process of turning an idea or thought over and over in my mind. I have come to recognize that this same process of reflection serves to bring a wide range of information and understanding to my care of patients and it is both enriching and creative,” said Jerome Lowenstein, MD, a professor of Medicine at New York University.

Dr. Lowenstein will present "The Midnight Meal Revisited,” which will emphasize his belief in the importance of communication among and between physicians, students and patients. He also will present a 20-minute video, "The Midday Meal," which involves small group meetings among third-year medical students at NYU. The tradition is a part of the Humanistic Aspects of Medical Education program that Dr. Lowenstein started nearly 40 years ago. Supported by his stories in "The Midnight Meal," Dr. Lowenstein will attempt to bring the practice of medicine back to basics.

Dr. Lowenstein is a professor of Medicine at New York University whose clinical expertise is in the areas of nephrology and internal medicine. Much of his career has been devoted to teaching, research and the care of patients. He also is an author, writing books on acid-base physiology, a collection of essays based on his experiences as a physician and a work of fiction, “Henderson’s Equation.”
