The UVA Center for Health Humanities & Ethics  is a diverse interprofessional community of scholars, teachers, and practitioners whose interests in the human dimensions of illness, health, and health care bridge clinical and social sciences, arts and humanities, ethics and law, philosophy and religion.

Our mission is to demonstrate the complementary nature of our disciplines while furthering their productive integration and application in the classroom and clinic, at the bedside, and in the community.

The center offers ethics and humanities education for medical students, residents, and faculty in many different formats and venues.  In addition, center faculty teach graduate and undergraduate courses in biomedical ethics and humanities across a number of UVA schools and programs.
