This virtual longitudinal institute will empower health professions faculty to leverage the health humanities in their educational and scholarly practice, while creating a unique community of practice at the forefront of a cutting-edge movement to meaningfully integrate humanities in health professions education. Designed for physicians or nurses involved in health professions education, this course will provide an introduction to the health humanities, structural competency, history and theories of racism in healthcare, and health humanities-based approaches to addressing injustice.
