Center for Health HumanitiesCenters for Excellence
A research center for advanced thinking about the humanistic side of medicine, the Center for Health Humanities at MCPHS supports the work of scholars, researchers, and healthcare practitioners.
Humanities Brings Humanity into Healthcare
You can’t be a good clinician without understanding basic concepts of humanism. That credo was the impetus for launching the Center for Health Humanities (CHH). Through interdisciplinary scholarship and research, the health humanities add human perspectives to the understanding of illness and healthcare. With research retreats, seminars, poster sessions, visiting speakers, and other events, the CHH fosters a collaborative environment for students and faculty and promotes health humanities in the wider academic, medical, and healthcare communities.
