The UCI School of Medicine Medical Humanities and Arts Program (MHAP) integrates the field of medicine with humanities and the arts to explore the role of medicine and disease within our diverse social contexts and reimagine care for the whole person. Through scholarship, creative endeavors, critical reflection and public engagement, students enhance their skills in using multiple lenses to view healthcare in ways that can transform personal and professional perspectives.

Medical school is a formative period for new healers. In the midst of sharpening our diagnostic reasoning skills and suture skills, we are confronted with the duality of the joy and sorrow of the human experience in our hospital and clinic walls. Participating in MHAP is a wonderful opportunity to practice humanistic medicine and give story to the monumental experiences of a new health professional. -Kaveri Curlin, MS3
