Organizer

Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics

We strive to be a leading Center educating medical students and health professionals in ethics and professionalism while nurturing empathy and humanitarian values. We fulfill our mission by:

    • Preparing students to identify, analyze and resolve moral conflicts in patient care and medical research;

 

    • Deepening the attentiveness to patients that will persist throughout students' medical careers through exposure to excellent clinical role modeling, arts and letters; and

 

  • Developing a distinguished interdisciplinary community service learning program that focuses on ethics in action and serves as a bridge between ethics education and development of empathy and humanitarian values.

The Center focus on four key areas: Literature and Art, Medical Ethics and Professionalism, Community Service Learning and Global Health
