WHAT IS MEDICAL HUMANITIES? 

Medical Humanities is an interdisciplinary, humanistic and cultural study of illness, health, health care, and the body. This approach to illness and health allows for a discussion of the whole person, drawing themes from social justice and ethics.

 

The Medical Humanities Journal of Boston College is a subset of the Boston College Medical Humanities minor, which allows students to choose from a wide range of areas of interest spanning many different departments to discuss health and disease. Although much of the writing from these minor courses will fit directly into our submission categories, we encourage submissions from any and all fields of discipline.

Feel free to email us with any inquiries, submissions, or even suggestions on how we can improve. We are always happy to have feedback from our readers!
