The practice of medicine is a challenge, as much as it is a privilege. For it involves awareness of a context that is often complex, confusing and chaotic. Navigating this intricate context that reflects the cultural norms, political judgment, economic realities and psychological travails is vital.
Medical Humanities seeks to facilitate conversations that help us understand this very context by engaging with its various streams - Literature, Poetry, Theatre, Narrative, Art, Philosophy, Ethics and so on. It provides us a means of enquiry into our daily lives as medical students, interns, educators and doctors. By encouraging a process that is rich in reflection and introspection, it seeks to revive the humanistic tradition of medicine.
In an effort to encourage students appreciate the holistic nature of medicine, the Medical Education Unit, KMC, Manipal presents TBH - To Be Human - The Medical Humanities Interest Group. We hope to promote an appreciation of the Humanities - for its instrumental value in influencing medical practice, and its intrinsic value in making medical practice more meaningful.
With this, we proudly announce a new beginning. Join us in our endeavours to follow our journey!
