Medical Humanities

Use this guide to assist with research related to the study of medical humanities.

Welcome to the Medical Humanities Resource Guide

Hi there! My name is Caitlin Pike, and I'm the Medical Humanities Librarian. I'm assigned specifically to your program, and I'm happy to help you with any and all research needs you may have. All of my contact information is on the right, so please don't hesitate to call or email me with any questions.

I have tried to divide up the resources on the left in a logical way, but please know that they are not comprehensive. Medical Humanities is by definition a multidisciplinary program of study, so if you are having trouble finding specific information, please let me know.


If you have never done academic research before, please start here.


As always, if you spend more than ten minutes looking for something, contact a librarian!

Databases Quick Links

Not sure what discipline covers your topic? Not finding enough information? Interdisciplinary databases contain articles from the sciences, social sciences, and arts & humanities. They are a great way to see who is talking about your topic and to expand your research.

Web of Science and SCOPUS, while interdisciplinary, are weighted towards science.
