ABOUT THE MEDICAL HUMANITIES GRADUATE PROGRAM AT THE IMH, UTMB:
Since its founding in 1973, the IMH has brought together historians, philosophers, and scholars in literature, religious studies, jurisprudence, and other humanities disciplines to offer their perspectives on health, illness, and related topics. In 1988, the graduate program at the IMH was authorized to offer the United States' first M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in the medical humanities. Two decades later, the IMH is still one of the very few programs in the United States to offer advanced degrees in the medical humanities and is the only one to offer a Ph.D. in medical humanities. The Graduate Program Director is Anne Hudson Jones, Ph.D., Hobby Family Professor in the Medical Humanities.
