UCL center To raise awareness of medical humanities as an academic discipline Medical humanities is an interdisciplinary, and increasingly international endeavor that draws on the creative and intellectual strengths of diverse disciplines, including literature, art, creative writing, drama, film, music, philosophy, ethical decision making, anthropology, and history, in pursuit of medical educational goal.
Educational objectives to connect with, or appreciate, the perspective of all those affected by illness: the person who is ill, the persons who love them, and the professionals involved in their care to facilitate reflection on the physician’s own practice, on its strengths and weaknesses, so that he or she can build on the former and address the latter to provide both cultural and historical perspectives on illness and health care
Search for meaning No need is so compelling as the need we all feel for our lives to make sense, to have meaning. We will tolerate almost any degree of austerity or risk in this indomitable quest for meaning. Futurist and strategic thinker, Willis Harman
Career Example Wayne Lewis was general practitioner who escaped the pressures of clinical medicine through literature (novels and poetry). He was frustrated by the divided intellectual life. Gradually, he started to use literature to teach medical students in discussion of medical ethics. After he completed an MA in medical humanities at Swansea, he got interested in philosophy of science and theology. This opened up new horizons and allowed him to reflect on his clinical activities in all sorts of unexpected ways. Practically, he was able to incorporate discussion of religious issues, particularly surrounding bereavement, into his practice. He became a lecturer teaching literature and philosophy to medical students at the University of Wales College of Medicine, and took up a post of lecturer in medical humanities at Swansea, teaching the MA course.
