University of Exeter,
Medical School

A legacy of the Peninsula Medical School and Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry, Exeter University medical school runs the most advanced core and integrated medical humanities programme in any medical school. The medical humanities are integrated into provision and do not warrant a separate website. There is vibrant research in the field, linking with Medical Humanities across Centres at the University of Exeter (above). A large range of Special Study Components (SSCs) run in Years 1, 2 and 4, with a longitudinal SSC in Year 4 taken by all students that results in an assessed piece of work and a student-run conference.

Here is an example of a recent Year 4 students’ work commenting on the UK England junior doctors’ strike (MP3 file)

Oxford

University of Oxford
The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH)

TORCH is based at the historic Radcliffe Humanities Building. The building was formerly the Radcliffe Infirmary, which was Oxford’s first hospital and was open from 1770 to 2007. It is fitting that a centre that supports research that brings the sciences and arts together should be based in an old hospital. Indeed, one of TORCH’s major initial programmes is a collaborative venture called Medicine, Science and the Humanities which, according to Prof. Mark Harrison, the programme director, “will produce the world’s largest forum for Medical Humanities and provide an unparalleled resource for public and professional engagement”.
