The Medical Humanities Workgroup at Western Michigan University is dedicated to educational and research support in the medical humanities, including: medical ethics, history of medicine, medical anthropology, religious approaches to health, health narratives, health education and conceptions of wellness.

We host an undergraduate minor, and are in the process of developing a graduate certificate and a Master of Arts degree.  We also host an annual conference--now in its sixth year--that draws participants from the community, nationally, and internationally.
