The Medicine & the Humanities program at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa is a new and evolving program. It seeks to enhance our students’ education by formally infusing both our French and English streams’ curricula with concepts of health, medicine and healing through medical history, philosophy, the arts and literature.

According to Stanford University’s program, “Since humans have been able, we have used philosophy, literature, religion, art, music, history and language to understand and record our world. These modes of expression have become some of the subjects that traditionally fall under the humanities umbrella.”

Check out the 2020 edition of Murmurs Magazine, a Journal of Art and Healing, featuring extraordinary art work by University of Ottawa medical students, as well as medical students from across the country.
