Center for Health Humanities

The health humanities add humanistic perspectives to the understanding of illness and healthcare through interdisciplinary scholarship and research.

By sponsoring research retreats, seminars, poster sessions, visiting speakers and other special events, the MCPHS Center for Health Humanities (CHH) fosters a supportive environment for collaborative faculty scholarship and outreach and promotes health humanities in the wider academic, medical, and healthcare communities.

Health humanities has become an established component of the curriculum at many medical schools. MCPHS is committed to advancing health humanities initiatives in the health professions. The University's support of the CHH demonstrates one of its core values: the integration of the liberal arts and professional studies.
