A medical student who battled cancer during his training. A doctor and patient who formed a lifelong bond. Students learning about themselves while caring for the homeless.
These are a few of the compelling stories showcased in a series of videos emerging from a collaboration between the University of Colorado Denver’s College of Arts and Media (CAM) and the School of Medicine.
The project began months ago when leaders of the college and school created a program in which scholarship students would capture some of the moving and important stories that play out in medicine through short films.
The five videos cover research, education, community engagement and clinical care—the pillars of the medical school. The CAM students, part of the Media Scholars Program created for the project, shot and edited the videos, created graphics and composed and recorded original scores.
