In addition, scholars will teach one IBHH graduate seminar in their research area and may be involved in educational sessions for healthcare professional students and practicing clinicians. As a member of IBHH, scholars will participate in Institute events, such as seminar series and work in progress sessions.  The IBHH houses the nation’s only Ph.D. program in Medical Humanities.
