The Humanities track offers students an opportunity to pursue a self-directed course of creative practice and research with a focus on the arts and humanities, in parallel with their medical education. As part of a broader Medicine+Humanities initiative at Jefferson, the track’s program is guided by the principle that the arts and humanities provide a rich context for practicing habits of mind related to observation, interpretation, and reflection, which are as essential to the successful practice of medicine as mastery of basic science and other clinical skills. Students work closely with professional artists, as well as Jefferson-affiliated faculty, to build technical and conceptual skills in the arts and humanities and carry out an independent capstone project.
