The College of Medicine and its Humanism in Medicine family have focused on ways to continue to create a more humanistic environment in which to care for our patients, educate our students and residents and pursue research. From compassionate patient care to enthusiastic and innovative teaching, we continue to look for ways to make the OSU College of Medicine experience one that fosters life-long learning, excellence in patient care, and support for leading-edge research. To that end, we are moving forward in several areas under the Humanism in Medicine Initiative. Our signature program is Medicine and the Arts, designed to help us come together as a medical community through the healing presence of the arts. Our Educators with Heart program recognizes the dedicated people who support the Education Mission. Courage to Teach honors faculty members and residents that take the time to provide excellence in education through a humanistic teaching model. Our Humanism in Medicine program, created by medical students, helps us to carefully build a support system for our emerging physicians as well as offer multiple avenues to nurture the arts in medicine. Under the Humanism in Medicine banner are the following programs, Medicine and the Arts, Medicine and the Arts Roundtable, Educators with Heart, Courage to Teach, Humanism in Medicine: Residents, and Humanism in Medicine: Students.
