  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • 2015. Panel presentation (with Susan Sample and Jessie Richards, University of Utah) for the 66th Annual Conference on College Composition and Communication. Proposal shows discussion items for panel presenters regarding personal, political, and professional narratives that have been (re)adapted by rhetoric and composition across educational, professional, and war institutions. I present on a 6-year study of medical students' reflective writing about surgical rotation experiences education, which reveals that students' chosen genres and narratives characterize significant aspects of personal epistemology in medical training and emphasize their need for relational and empathetic surgical educators in medical education.
