The aim of this article is to increase understanding about the validity of narrative and storytelling as approaches to learning and social awareness for medical professionals. If practiced widely, these could bring great benefits to the healthcare system as a whole. This contribution is the result of teaching and researching at the University of Salerno in a degree program aimed at improving students’ learning and professional progress through the study and application of The Sociology of Health and Illness.
