Whether you are a patient, student, faculty, staff, or just browsing, we have something to offer you. Our department, the first to be situated in a College of Medicine, is dedicated to the Penn State missions of teaching, research, and service. Our courses are woven throughout the medical school and residency curriculum and our scholarship is multidisciplinary and cutting edge. We are leaders in the study of End-of-Life care, prevention of child abuse, and relational behaviors. Our service activities includes clinical care, community outreach, arts and healing, the Farmer’s Market, and global missions, as well as many others.
We are Penn State proud to offer experiences to both patients and providers that make every day life humanistic. Through the Department of Humanities, we help keep the caring in health care.
