About Us

The McGovern Center for Humanities and Ethics has evolved and flourished in direct response to health care challenges and opportunities that face healthcare professionals.

We address dehumanizing forces by studying and teaching ways in which care and research can be delivered in an ethically-sound, spiritually-formed, and culturally-appropriate manner.

We believe that changing medicine means changing how we educate and train physicians.

Our teaching and programs feed the hearts and minds of faculty and students in medicine, nursing, dentistry, and other health professional schools at UTHealth.
