Medical Humanities Interdisciplinary Minor

Although many universities and medical schools have programs in medical humanities and/or bioethics, Davidson College was one of the first liberal arts colleges to offer such a program.


In order to complete the requirements for the Medical Humanities Interdisciplinary Minor, you must take six courses, including two core requirements and four electives. You are also strongly encouraged to take one class that offers an applied experience in a health care setting. You are invited to suggest courses for your Medical Humanities Interdisciplinary Minor and major that are not included in the course list. The director or associate director of medical humanities must grant permission.
