Humanism in Healthcare

Humanism in Healthcare is a brand new branch of the MEDucate division of The Premed Scene. While it is important for pre-health students to have the tools and resources available to succeed in each step of their journey to medicine, it is vital that our generation remains educated on topics that make this field “human”. 


A physician’s job is not to merely see a patient, provide medications or perform surgery, and send them on their way. Instead, a good physician is a compassionate and open-minded individual who values the importance of respecting individual beliefs, being culturally competent, and establishing a trusting relationship with their team and patients. 

Within this webinar series, we hope to further educate you on topics that have been historically placed on the back burner of trainings, but are in dire need of increased awareness to become a well-rounded healthcare professional. Such topics will include presentations on self-care, mental health, bioethical issues, racial disparities, public health, biases, and stigmas surrounding underserved populations, and more. If you have any topics in mind that you would like to see, or if you would like to hear from certain speakers, please email us at!
