What is a Master in Medical Humanities? This is a unique field that combines two vastly different areas of study: healthcare and the arts. Medical humanities students are taught in-depth medicine principles, but also aspects of the humanities, social science, and the arts, commonly including philosophy, religion, sociology, literature, and film. With these two areas together, new and interesting questions can be created and answered. The primary focus of a medical humanities program is the training of medical practitioners.

As an interdisciplinary field, medical humanities equips students with an especially diverse skillset that may benefit their career with higher salaries and more openings. These skills can include healthcare practices, ethics understanding, and professional communication.

Before enrolling in a master's degree program, students should first research how much it will cost. The exact cost changes depending on many factors, which can include the program, school, and length and country of study.

The most common types of careers possible with an education in medical humanities incorporate healthcare to some degree. These can include social worker, healthcare administrator, counselor, and physical or occupational therapist. It is uncommon, but not impossible, to pursue a career as a doctor or nurse with an education in this field. It is also possible to become a pharmacist with this degree. Other fields that graduates can enter include health education and community health.

The best way to begin your education in medical humanities is to find a program that fulfills all your unique needs exactly. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
