The Shame and Medicine Project have collaborated with artists and academics to bring the phenomenology of shame to life and create resources that can be used in medical education. The Shame and Medicine Project and The Shame Conversation developed by Dr Will Bynum (Duke University), and in collaboration with Charlotte Wu, MD (Harness Health Global) commissioned two graphic artists who produced Needlestick and Shame Spiral. The aim of this graphic medicine project was to depict shame experiences in medical learning, and for the artwork to be a resource to use in medical education and to contribute to the growing field of graphic medicine.

Excitingly this artwork is on display until December 2022 in the West Wing foyer of the Queen’s Building on the University of Exeter Streatham campus.
