Medical Humanities


Medical Humanities brings together different approaches to common issues related to the social, historical, cultural, economic and ethical challenges of medicine and health care practices. In their dialogue with clinicians, researchers, caregivers and medical students, Medical Humanities bring a complementary, critical, contextualized and reflective perspective - a perspective that is necessary for an in-depth understanding of today's medicine and the health challenges posed by the evolution of our societies.

iEH2 participated in the elaboration of the brochure of the Swiss Academies Medical Humanities: the significance of human and social sciences for the medical and health professions (Swiss Academies Communications 9(5), 2014).
