Global Medical Humanities: Bridging Digital Divides in Healthcare

A two-year faculty and curriculum development project on global health and medicine in the digital age.

The proposal seeks to establish a first-of-its-kind undergraduate program providing students the knowledge and skills needed to innovate and excel in the multi-disciplinary fields of global health and medicine in an era of profound digital transformation and persistent inequality. We will develop a Global Medical Humanities Undergraduate Certificate Program. This will include courses that provide students the opportunity to apply their understandings of humanistic modes of inquiry and foreign languages to an array of global health concerns. Students will also be afforded experiential learning opportunities to contribute to KU's WHO-affiliated Community Tool Box website. The certificate is KU's first major initiative to bring together linguists, humanists, and social scientists with global expertise to address health-related themes in their classes. The centerpiece of this proposal is a curriculum development workshop to align the various partners in the larger vision for the program.
