Medical Center Hour is the School of Medicine’s weekly public forum on medicine and society. Produced by the Center for Health Humanities and Ethics, the series includes History of the Health Sciences Lectures co-presented with Historical Collections in the Claude Moore Health Sciences Library. The series is also home to several other annual lectures of the Schools of Medicine and Nursing.

Medical Center Hour is presented on Wednesdays from mid-September through March at midday (12:00-1:00 pm) in the medical school’s Pinn Hall Conference Center Auditorium, unless otherwise announced. All programs are free and open to the entire university and the public.

Most programs are videorecorded for educational purposes and, with speakers’ permission, made available through UVA Library and also on Medical Center Hour’s dedicated YouTube channel, UVAMCH. Because recordings must be closed-captioned before being posted, there will be delays in online program availability.
