Advice and Consultations

The lab has a wide variety in expertise in the medical humanities all along the project spectrum, from idea development to publication/presenation, that is happily shared. 


Lab members can connect you to available communication technology in the library, from IT, and across campus.


The lab can help advice and coordinate with the library and/or room reservations to find space on campus for medical humanities activities whether it is for working on a project or finding a display/ presentation space. 

Collaboration with the T.H. Chan School of Medicine Pathways Course

The Pathway course for medical students is designed to provide students with longitudinal experiences to (1) gain skillsets pertinent to their future careers, (2) establish meaningful community partnerships and/or research projects and (3) provide experiential learning opportunities that will strengthen residency program applications. As part of the course, students are required to complete a group Pathways Longitudinal Project (PLP) by their 4th year. 

Humanities is integrated into the first year of the Pathway course through a dedicated class session. Students may also incorporate Medical Humanities into their PLP.
