Understanding the human dimensions of health, healing and well-being animates this inter-school excellence initiative.
This provost-sponsored initiative is a collaborative effort by faculty from the schools of the Arts, Humanities, and Medicine to build a nationally distinctive and innovative inter-school program in medical humanities.
Medical Humanities will support research projects by faculty in the three schools; harness existing curricular content and develop new course content towards a Medical Humanities minor and coursework for medical students; and promote scholarly and public conversations about health, healing and well-being.
The program is under the co-direction of three UC Irvine faculty members:
- Douglas M. Haynes, Ph.D (Department of History)
- Aaron Kheriaty, M.D. (Department of Psychiatry)
- Johanna Shapiro, Ph.D (Department of Family Medicine)
