Our mission

Cafe Event Humanities in Medicine (HuMe) is a student interest group at the University of Washington School of Medicine that provides a venue to discuss the connections between the humanities and medicine amongst peers, staff and faculty. HuMe promotes the value of a humanistic foundation for the practice of medicine, and strives to enrich the minds and hearts of medical students with the grandeur, nobility and challenge of literature and philosophical thought. We foster an environment of open-mindedness and mutual respect in order to promote the robust sharing of ideas across diverse cultural, religious and philosophical perspectives.
