Residency Medical Humanities Track

Health care is both science and art. Caring for a patient is a professional and scientific practice; it is also a personal relationship between the patient and practitioner.  We are happy to be able to offer a track in medical humanities through the School of Medicine and Dentistry, and encourage resident participation in the program. Applications for the program are open enrollment.   

URMC School of Medicine and Dentistry (32 credits for Medical Humanities MS) – Sample Curriculum – the Medical Humanities Program offers classes in the spring and fall semester, which can be completed in 4 years by taking one class each semester.
