Medical Center Hour




Fall 2019 Medical Center Hour Schedule


The Medical Center Hour is the School of Medicine’s weekly forum on medicine and society. Produced by the Center for Biomedical Ethics and Humanities in partnership with Historical Collections of the Health Sciences Library, our series includes History of the Health Sciences Lectures.

Medical Center Hour is held on Wednesdays from mid-September through March at midday (12:00-1:00 pm ) in the Pinn Hall Conference Center Auditorium. All programs are free and open to the entire university and the public.
