The coordinators, faculty and staff of Davidson's Medical Humanities Concentration are all committed to excellent undergraduate education. What brings them together is their desire to humanize medicine. Individually, the Medical Humanities faculty and staff are the authors of many scholarly books and articles, the initiators of major biomedical research projects and public-policy proposals, and speakers at numerous conferences. Collectively, they are a group that regularly meets with students to discuss current issues in Bioethics. Their work is supported by the College and the Frederick Womble Speas Family.
