Updates from the Rudin Fellowship

The Rudin Fellowship in Medical Ethics and Humanities was established as a core component of the Master Scholars Program in Humanistic Medicine (MSPHM) at NYU School of Medicine in 2014 through a generous grant from the Louis and Rachel Rudin Foundation, Inc. The fellowship offers medical students and trainees the opportunity to conduct year-long research projects in medical humanities or biomedical ethics with funding support and the mentorship of our most expert faculty. Rudin Fellows pursue interdisciplinary scholarship, bringing the arts, humanities, and social sciences to bear on critical topics in the history, culture, and practice of medicine. Students and residents in the Rudin Fellowship undertake these projects concurrently with their standard education and training.
