Medical Humanities

What's the meaning behind medicine? That question is at the core of the medical humanities program.

This academic path prepares you for a career in healthcare underpinned by a foundation in both the sciences and the liberal arts. You'll reflect on the meanings of health and healing, consider the ethical and spiritual issues you may encounter as a healthcare professional and reflect on the impact scientific medicine has on society. The career possibilities within healthcare are vast. You'll be able to pursue opportunities in various health professions, health education, public health and healthcare administration, as well as be prepared for graduate school.
