Micah Gamble, MD Candidate
"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."
Sarah Tucker, MD
Medical Humanities "Gave me a space to think about death and understand how that is going to affect me when patients die. Death is not the enemy of medicine."
