Medicine, Health, and Society (MHS) investigates the cultural, economic, demographic, and biological factors that impact health. Drawing on courses in the medical sciences, humanities, and social sciences, this innovative interdisciplinary field of study transcends the traditional biomedical approach to understanding health and illness. MHS students learn to think critically about complex social issues that impact health, healthcare, and health policy. The curriculum is designed to train students to meet challenges in our healthcare system as well as changes in medical education. MHS is dedicated to training the next generation of national and international health leaders - from doctors and nurses to economists and policy makers.
