This free online course will explore the intersection of medicine, medical anthropology and the creative arts. Through each of its six weeks, we’ll visit a new aspect of human life and consider it from the perspectives of people working in health sciences, social sciences and the arts.
The course will introduce you to the emerging field of medical humanities and the concept of whole person care, via these six themes:
- The Heart of the Matter: A Matter of the Heart
- Children’s Voices and Healing
- Mind, Art and Play
- Reproduction and Innovation
- Tracing Origins
- Death and the Corpse
Together, we’ll question our propensity to separate the body from the mind in healthcare, consider what defines humanity, and share points of connection and difference between art and medicine.
