Immersions

Liberal and Medical Arts

The literary arts, medical humanities, and social sciences provide insight into wellness, illness, disability, and pathology, and offer historical views on medical practices. Attention to liberal arts helps to develop cultural and communication perspectives. These Liberal Arts courses will develop skills in critical analysis, interpersonal empathy, and self-reflection -- skills that are essential for human-centered medical care. The immersion will help students examine how bioscience and medicine interact with cultural, cognitive, and communicative contexts and how these impact the individual experience of illness and the ways medicine is practiced.
