For Current MD Students Master Scholars Program in Humanistic Medicine

The Master Scholars Program in Humanistic Medicine at NYU School of Medicine helps MD students cultivate values such as empathy, justice, compassion, respect, and communication. By enhancing their insight into the experiences of all people involved in the delivery and receipt of healthcare, students become more empathetic clinicians, scientists, leaders, and advocates.

This paracurricular, or noncredit, program promotes scholarship and creative pursuits at the intersections of medicine with the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Our seminars, events, and other activities are geared toward medical students but open to all members of the NYU community. Participants can pursue creative and intellectual interests not necessarily covered in the medical school curriculum.
