Welcome to the Humanities Department

The Penn State College of Medicine Department of Humanities was one of the founding Departments when the college opened it’s doors in 1967. In fact, it was the first such department ever to be included in a College of Medicine in the US!. As the oldest such department in the country, the faculty in Humanities have long been engaged in a wide variety of innovative educational, scholarly, service and community focused endeavors.

The department consists of 15 vibrant joint and core faculty, roughly half of whom are also front line physicians. The department has expertise in fields as diverse as Anthropology, Literature, and the History of Medicine. The department also leads the Ethics Consultation Service for the Heath Science Center.
