This concentration offers an interdisciplinary course of study drawn from the Liberal Arts. The field of Medical Humanities provides medical students with qualitative humanistic and socio-cultural perspectives on health care. Students will study more comprehensively, and in-depth, the social, cultural, and humanistic determinants and consequences of health, disease, and healing from literary, historical and bioethical perspectives. This is a collaboration with the Medical Humanities and Health Studies Program in the School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI, which will serve as the primary integration site for student work.
Topic-specific courses and scholarly work will take place on the Indianapolis campus,
