Revising the Certificate in Medical Humanities

A one-year planning grant to revise an existing certificate program in medical humanities.

Revising the Certificate in Medical Humanities is a project led by a multidisciplinary cohort from the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Nursing and Health Innovation at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA). Our goal through this project is to strengthen the medical humanities certificate and to expand it to include a more broadly-termed health, humanities, and society initiative. Using the existing certificate as a springboard, we seek to further bridge the artificial divide between the humanities, social sciences, arts, and health professions with the following aims: 1) Formalize and expand an interdisciplinary advisory cohort centering on health, humanities, and society at UTA; 2) Critically assess the curriculum in medical humanities at UTA to identify new integrative learning opportunities for students; and 3) Establish dynamic communication and partnerships with the Dallas-Fort Worth community to provide experiential learning activities for undergraduate students.
