The Institute for the Medical Humanities is committed to moral inquiry, research, teaching, and professional service in medicine and health care. In today's often bewildering world of scientific, technological, cultural, and political changes, medicine faces human problems and possibilities that transcend traditional academic disciplines. Members of the Institute engage in research on ethical and legal problems in clinical practice and biomedical research; and on philosophical, historical, visual, literary, and religious dimensions of medicine and health care. This broad-gauged inquiry provides the foundation for the activities of the Institute faculty in medical and graduate teaching, clinical ethics consultation, and health policy analysis locally and in state, national, and international academic and public forums.
