The Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics and Medicine & the Muse Program sponsor the Scholarly Concentration in Biomedical Ethics and Medical Humanities for current medical students. Additionally, courses in clinical and research ethics, humanities, social sciences and the arts related to health are offered for medical, undergraduate and graduate students.
Biomedical Ethics and Medical Humanities (BEMH) Scholarly Concentration
Biomedical Ethics and Medical Humanities is a foundation area within the Scholarly Concentration (SC) program. This area explores the moral, social, and humanistic dimensions of medicine and biomedical science. Using cross-disciplinary methods such as those from philosophy, social science, film, literature, art, and law, students examine the meaning and implications of medicine and medical research.
Stanford medical students interested in BEMH should take INDE 212: Medical Humanities and the Arts (MHATA) in their first year of medical school (Q3).
