Distinction in Medical Humanities - Global Health Track

Program type: 
Program description: 

The MD with Distinction in Medical Humanities provides UT Health Science Center at San Antonio medical students with the opportunity to spend part of their medical school career exploring the interdisciplinary program offerings of the Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics (CMHE). The interdisciplinary nature of this Distinction will expose students to novel career options while enabling them to develop a strong record in both academics and community outreach that will be well regarded by residency selection committees. Our global health program provides a unique opportunity for our faculty and staff to teach medical ethics and humanitarian values through in class instruction and mentored experiential learning opportunities in developing countries. All of the CMHE’s international electives adhere to a Community Service Learning model and aim to contribute to the development of empathy and humanitarian values in the next generation of health care providers.
