Medical Humanities in China
Peking University Institute for Medical Humanities, University Health Science Center
15-17th October, 2015

What is needed now is new vectors through which medical professionals and students can reflect on their practice, as well as a broadening of the field of vision to include more investment in the Medical Humanities through arts, literature and film. We invite contributions to six panels convened by leading academics from the universities:
