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. Students develop skills in critical analysis, interpersonal empathy, and self-reflection, all of which are essential for human-centered medical care. The immersion will 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. Students pursuing programs in medical disciplines, medical informatics, medical illustration, and psychology will find this immersion particularly beneficial.
