Medical Humanities Conference 2023


We have a schedule overview, organized both by presenter name and by topic.  Our full program is also available--note that the sessions are hyperlinked to the Teams channel in which they will be presented.  Our abstract book has full descriptions of all the presentations.

We are also pleased to announce our keynote lecture, by Dr. Matt DeCamp, M.D., Ph.D. (Center for Bioethics and the Humanities, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus).  Dr. DeCamp's presentation is entitled "Chatbots in Medicine:  Helpful Nudge or Biased Manipulation?", and will be at 12:00pm.  It is open (for free) to the public, and a link will be posted here.  Please feel free to invite your students; here is a flyer for the talk.
