Literature & Medicine Grant Resources


From 2003 to 2016, Mass Humanities ran the Literature & Medicine program as Literature & Medicine: Humanities at the Heart of Health Care™ as designed by the Maine Humanities Council. This document contains syllabi used by scholars and doctors at hospitals throughout Massachusetts during this time; they are now available as a resource to use in creating new syllabi. As of 2016, all applications must come through the Literature & Medicine grant.
