Health Humanities / Medical Humanities
THE DISCIPLINE KNOWN AS HEALTH HUMANITIES OR "HH" OPERATES AT THE INTERSECTION OF HEALTHCARE AND THE HUMANITIES: PHILOSOPHY, RELIGION, LITERATURE, CINEMA, MUSIC, THE FINE ARTS, AND SO FORTH.
WHEN COMBINED WITH SOCIAL SCIENCE RESEARCH, THIS ALLOWS US TO EXAMINE CULTURALLY SPECIFIC ASPECTS OF THE HUMAN CONDITION, THE PATIENT’S EXPERIENCE, AND THE HEALER’S EXPERIENCE––WHILE OFFERING THE PROMISE OF RENEWAL FOR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS.
THIS IS ALL PART AND PARCEL OF THE NEW CURRICULUM AT DGSOM
