The UCSD Medical Humanities Group

You can also view past UCSD Medical Humanities Group. 


The UCSD Medical Humanities Group was founded in 2012 with support from the UCSD Humanities Center. The group brings together scholars in the humanities, UCSD physicians and medical students, nurses, community health professionals, and interested others to discuss classic literature dealing with medical themes, and contemporary fiction and non-fiction dealing with health and illness, death and dying, and related medical issues. Discussion takes place over dinner once a month during the academic year. The group's long-rage goal is to establish a Medical Ethics and Humanities Program at UC San Diego and integrate ethics and humanities into undergraduate and graduate medical education.

Future programs to be announced.
