Patients, Practitioners, and Cultures of Care

A two-year project to develop five courses to form a new medical humanities concentration within an existing interdisciplinary program.

We seek NEH support to develop Patients, Practitioners, and Cultures of Care as a concentration in the Bridging Disciplines Program under the auspices of the University of Texas at Austin's School of Undergraduate Studies. Aimed primarily at the sizable number of undergraduates at UT Austin who plan to go on to post-graduate education and careers in health professions, Patients, Practitioners, and Cultures of Care will weave together academic study, experiential learning, and student research in a set of linked courses. The proposed concentration is designed to illuminate for students the central role the humanities can and should play as they prepare themselves to address the multiple challenges facing healthcare providers today, and healthcare itself as a shared local, national, and global project.
