A Place for the Arts and Humanities in Medical Schools

October 19, 2017

More and more medical schools are adding the arts and humanities to their curriculum—either as requirements, electives, or student-lead groups. Schools like Yale, Columbia, and of course, Harvard recognize the extraordinary benefits to not only the students, but to their patients and to the faculty who also participate in these activities alongside the students.

The New York Times article, "Scalpel, Sponge, Magic Beans: When Doctors Moonlight as Actors," written by Suzy Evans, is written about the student-run theater company at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. However, schools like Harvard Medical School has its share of available arts and humanities activities.
