Medical Humanities offer innovative courses, using the arts and letters to respond to the multiple challenges that the evolution of our societies poses to future practitioners (the role of the doctor, the ageing population, the financing of health systems, IT technologies, etc.). Our courses solicit students' reflective and interpretative activity. Most of our courses are prepared and given by team teaching, i.e. a "humanist" with a doctorate in human sciences (literature, history of art, philosophy, history of medicine) and a clinician-researcher. This approach favours critical perspective based on a fruitful confrontation of points of view. The team teaching also enables the intellectual and methodological contributions specific to the humanities to be anchored in the concrete reality of medical practice.
