Graduate Medical Education in Humanities & Ethics

The Graduate Medical Education in Humanities and Ethics, or GME in H&E is a 10-month program offered through the McGovern Center to residents and fellows of McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston. The program facilitates resident/fellow physicians’ knowledge and skills in humanities and ethics as well as promotes their wellness. GME in H&E launched in August 2022 with its inaugural cohort, comprised of residents and fellows from various clinical departments at McGovern Medical School. The second cohort completed the program in May 2024.

Faculty in the Humanities and Ethics lead monthly sessions on topics including race and healthcare, death and dying, bioethics, physician writers, narrative medicine, and the visual arts. Participants also engage in reflective writing, seminar discussions, and the completion of a written or artistic work as a capstone project.
