School of Medical Humanities, Peking University (PKU, 北大)

UCL China Centre for Health and Humanity (CCHH) was developed in conjunction with PKU’s Health Sciences Centre, and particularly the PKU Institute of Medical Humanities.

The PKU Medical Humanities Institute is by far the largest in the world with some 600 postgraduate and 500 undergraduate students taking MHH courses each year. Thirty-nine full-time staff bring together history, philosophy, bioethics, literature, linguistics, medical anthropology, sociology, psychology, social work and health law as core aspects of MHH research.

Three years ago PKU Health Sciences Center and CCHH signed a Memorandum of Understanding aimed at improving the teaching of MHH using film (WT funded Film Workshop 2014) and visual culture (Vuillerman and Lo, PKU, 2015).

Collaborations

Recent collaborations include an international interdisciplinary conference on Medical Humanities in China (15-17th October, 2015), hosted by PKU Institute of Medical Humanities, and jointly convened by UCL and PKU
