The Medical Humanities engage students and healthcare professionals in learning, scholarship, and creative practice to better understand, hear, and care for the profound effects of illness and disease on patients and their caregivers. Our programs include foundations in Narrative Medicine, History of Medicine, Medical Anthropology, Ethics, Cultural Studies, Science and Technology Studies, Economics, Literature, and the Creative Arts, such as Writing, Film, and Visual Art. Brought together, these endeavors shape advances in interprofessional collaboration, communication, and interpretive skill, to foster humility and improve the quality of delivered care.
