Medical Humanities Undergraduate Certificate

Medicine's human element

Health care comes with ethical questions and cultural issues: death, life experiences, cost, diversity and more.

 

Use select courses in the humanities, arts and social sciences to find answers and develop skills. Increase your insight into the patient-caregiver link or prepare for non-medical careers.
