Macy Scott, MBA Candidate-Healthcare Administration
"Since before I came to Baylor, health care administration has always been my passion. It's the glue that holds the whole health care enterprise together and medical humanities helps me make sure I keep patients where they belong-at the center!"
Micah Gamble, MD
"A great deal of health is beyond what I can explain objectively. My foundation in the medical humanities plays a huge role in helping me understand the subjectivity within my patients' experiences of their medical condition."
Daniel Kiang, PharmD
"A lot of people go into college thinking they have to major in one of the traditional sciences to be a good candidate for professional school. However, my background in Medical Humanities helped me learn the vital art and skills of caring for humans - and that is invaluable training for anyone in health care whether they plan to be in pharmacy, medicine, nursing, etc."
