Student Works

Students involved with the Center create many wonderful pieces of literature, as well as narrative and research papers, all while exploring critical healthcare and ethical issues. The work the students do also has application in clinical settings, academic medicine, health policy and the liberal arts curriculum, and serves to deepen their ability to recognize, understand, and address ethical and humanistic issues in healthcare contexts.
