Medical Humanities Summer School 2019

Green Templeton College is delighted to be running the second Oxford University Summer School for Medical Humanities from 14 to 20 July 2019. This is a residential summer school for 20 talented undergraduate university and sixth form students. Oxford’s top academics will introduce students to the interface between medicine and a wide array of arts, social science and humanities subjects, including anthropology, philosophy, literature, law and art history. We hope to attract medical students who are interested in how humanities subjects can help them to develop their skills, and who want to think in a more integrated, inter-disciplinary way.

This interdisciplinary course is taught thematically. Each day or half-day is devoted to a specific topic on the connection between the art and the science of medicine: e.g. observation; illness narratives; language and communication; medical ethics; law; ageing; diversity, gender.

Teaching is a mixture of lecture-discussion and interactive workshops. Participants are required to do preparatory reading or viewing from poems, short stories, films, and articles from journals in relevant disciplines.

Applications close on 20 March 2019. Please visit this website for more information on how to apply:
