Programs

The Initiative in Theology, Medicine, and Culture draws on university and community talent and resources to pioneer new, transformative, and theologically-informed configurations of medicine that can serve as models for medicine’s moral and spiritual renewal within our larger culture. Programs engage scholars, clergy, clinicians, and faith communities in pursuit of new models for medicine’s moral and spiritual renewal within our larger culture.
