We define the term "medical humanities" broadly to include an interdisciplinary field of humanities (literature, philosophy, ethics, history and religion), social science (anthropology, cultural studies, psychology, sociology), and the arts (literature, theater, film, and visual arts) and their application to medical education and practice. The Medical Humanities retreat is the heart and soul of our Medical Humanities program at Baylor University. It is an opportunity for students to connect outside of the classroom with like minded peers, current medical students and dedicated medical professionals. Here we are able to explore the practice of medicine as a sacred calling.
We welcome students and faculty from all over the university at this event! With medicine in mind and heath care at heart, it is our dream to make as many people as possible aware of the heart and mission behind our program.
