Department of Health Humanities & Bioethics

The Department of Health Humanities and Bioethics is an interdisciplinary group drawn from the healthcare specialties and the humanities. Its application of humanities (history, literature, philosophy, visual arts, music, theater, studies in culture, religion, disabilities and gender) and bioethics (philosophy, law and clinical ethics) to the practice of medicine and the care of patients is a part of the University of Rochester's traditional consideration of the social and ethical contexts of medicine.
