The Medical Humanities Research Cluster consists of a cohort of scholars whose research and diverse practices blend scholarship with public engagement. Faculty and students foster local relationships with the Texas Medical Center and other medical institutions in Houston while bringing to light histories, ethical questions, narratives, and various forms of representation in the emerging field of Medical Humanities.

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