Maine Arts and Humanities in Medicine, Graduate Certificate Program Accepting Applications
An interdisciplinary graduate certificate program, targeting creative and medical practitioners, designed to examine in-depth the intersection of Art and Medicine. Its goal is to use multi-modal research to develop different ways of knowing, seeing and making.
At the University of Maine, within the Intermedia program, the Maine Arts and Humanities in Medicine graduate certificate program is now accepting applications for fall 2023. The program brings together arts and humanities graduate students with medical practitioners to explore approaches to health and well-being.
The 15-credit certificate, designed to be completed in a year, focuses on the role and function of arts and humanities in helping support and promote well-being for health care providers and, indirectly, their patients. The program is also an opportunity for arts-based practitioners interested in the role of health and well-being. Students in the arts, humanities and medicine collaborate to fathom what it means to live a full, well life and the creative approaches to health for professional development that can inform their human-centered work.
Discussions, readings, presentations and projects focus on current and important topics in medicine, practices of health, and the value of an engagement in the arts and humanities for the well-being of practitioners and their patients.
Students can apply online for the fall semester. The Graduate Certificate in Arts and Humanities in Medicine is a concentration in UMaine Intermedia Programs and supported by the university’s Institute of Medicine.
