The Medical Humanities Group consists of a cohort of scholars whose research and career interests blend academic skills with public engagement. Faculty and students foster local relationships with the Texas Medical Center and other medical institutions in Houston while bringing to light important histories, critical questions, narratives, and opportunities in the emerging field of Medical Humanities.

Rice now offers an interdisciplinary minor in the Medical Humanities for undergraduate students. To learn more about the minor, its requirements, and the course offerings, visit our About the Minor page.
