    Please see below about an event of interest, “Engaging Across Disciplines: Toward a Practice of Transdisciplinarity,” the 2021 Mayo Clinic Humanities in Medicine Symposium on Sep 17-18, 2021.

    Complex problems require complex solutions that challenge traditional ways of learning and model new strategies of making sense of both human experience and the findings of science. The 2021 Mayo Clinic Humanities in Medicine Symposium seeks to optimize patient care by supporting the further development of transdisciplinary understanding.

    Call for Abstracts

    We invite proposals that respond to the call for transformative thinking with an emphasis on collaborative work across disciplines. Of particular interest are proposals that address peace and social justice, equity, inclusion and diversity, and the impact of medical humanities in the time of COVID-19.  Proposals should be inclusive of all voices representing the full scope of health humanities in Education, Research and Patient Care. Submission deadline is 11:59 pm Central Time, June 15, 2021. Proposals received after the deadline will not be reviewed. Notification of a proposal’s status will be sent via email by early July 2021. Please click here for details.
