Medical Humanities

This is the subject guide for the Medical Humanities program at Baylor


Welcome to your Medical Humanities subject guide. This guide contains general information about library services and resources, recommendations for research resources in the Medical Humanities, information about library research services, and citation resources. 

Medical Humanities is a highly interdisciplinary program with courses taught across both the sciences and the humanities.  Central to this program are courses that focus on the role of Christian spirituality in healthcare, the importance of the relationship between patient and practitioner, and the changing nature of healthcare in the 21st century. The faculty in the Medical Humanities program have strong ties to the Waco medical community which allows them to offer outstanding opportunities for clinical experience, mentoring and service.
