Center for Humanities in Medicine

The Center for Humanities in Medicine supports Mayo Clinic’s primary value, the needs of the patient come first, by integrating the arts and other expressions of human culture into the healing environment.

The Center engages interconnected communities of patients, families, staff, learners, and the public to promote the artful and compassionate delivery of healthcare. Humanities in Medicine activities are open to Mayo Clinic patients, staff, visitors and community members and are made possible by the generous donations of grateful benefactors.

Proposals Invited for 2019 Mayo Clinic Humanities in Medicine Symposium

By Katherine Kough, @kitkough


Call for Abstracts

In 2019, we invite attendees to share how they came to connect with health humanities and each other – in settings within clinical walls and communities at large – highlighting the unique ability of the humanities to respond to divergent, yet often interconnected patient, provider, administrative, and public needs.  Presentations highlighting successful existing programming, ongoing research, and approaches to curriculum are encouraged.
