Medical Humanities is an interdisciplinary program that approaches questions of medicine, health, and disease from a variety of fields in the Humanities and the Social Sciences. It focuses on the ways that medicine and the biological sciences function within specific historical, social, and cultural contexts, and the ways that culture impacts the individual experience of illness and the practice of medicine, in the modern United States and in other times and places.
