The Centre for the Humanities and Health promotes research in the Medical Humanities through a multi-stranded programme of research on "The Boundaries of Illness". It engages scholars from arts, Humanities and health disciplines nationally and internationally (from Literature, Philosophy, History, the Visual Arts, Film Studies, Clinical Psychology and Psychiatry, Medicine and Nursing) all of whom will support the development of a new Master's programme in the Medical Humanities, and extend the College's existing capacity in Medical Humanities at masters, doctoral, post-doctoral and international levels.
The Wellcome Collection challenges how we think and feel about health, and creates opportunities for people to think deeply about the connections between science, medicine, life and art, through a variety of mediums.
Medical Humanities presents the international conversation around medicine and its engagement with the humanities and arts, social sciences, health policy, medical education, patient experience and the public at large. The journal publishes scholarly and critical articles on a broad range of topics. These include history of medicine, cultures of medicine, disability studies, gender and the body, communities in crisis, bioethics, and public health.
