The Medical Humanities Consortium (MHC) is a diverse and vibrant group of scholars, educators, students, health practitioners, patients, scientists, artists, and writers who gather annually to discuss research and teaching in the medical humanities.
Broadly defined, the medical humanities discipline includes humanities fields such as literature, philosophy, ethics, history, religion; the literary, visual, and performing arts; and social science fields such as anthropology, psychology, and sociology. Together, these fields offer insight into the human condition, the experience of suffering, and our ethical responsibilities to one another. The medical humanities in its various forms promotes education and research about the skills and knowledge necessary for health, healing and humane health care.
The Medical Humanities Consortium seeks to educate our members and the public about new theories, pedagogies, and practices in medical humanities. We invite you to join us for our upcoming annual meeting at Drew University in May 2013.
