Benefits to Humanities Scholars

Benefits to Humanities Scholars

Humanities scholars can be enriched by an ongoing dialogue with colleagues from clinical disciplines and by having direct access to clinical/teaching settings which link to their areas of study or critical theory.  They will be invited to help shape the discourse around perceptions of health and illness in our learning community and society at large.  Although the central focus of the Program is on increasing the role of humanities in the provision of good patient care, another goal will be to widen its focus significantly by understanding medicine in the context of the humanities.
