The biomedical humanities major at Hiram College is an innovative and interdisciplinary area of study geared to preparing students for successful careers in a range of health care fields.

This major couples an intensive science core – one that meets the requirements for medical schools – with a curriculum that utilizes courses in medical humanities enabling students to develop a balanced approach to healthcare.

With an emphasis on preparing students for careers in the medical field, all biomedical humanities majors are required to participate in four internships: one in biomedical research, one in clinical shadowing and two service learning projects. Students have completed numerous off-site shadowing and service learning experiences.

Hiram students also have access to medical professionals at internationally renowned hospital systems. This level of exposure to the application of medical sciences is a distinctive feature of Hiram's biomedical humanities program and it gives our students an understanding of day-to-day working environments that is difficult to match on an undergraduate level.
