The goals of the Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities are directly in line with the mission of UMMC - promoting and engaging in education, research, and the improvement of healthcare delivery.
Research at the center investigates a wide variety of ways in which social, cultural, historical, and moral psychological forces influence health, disease, and injury. Our research programs include signature projects that involve all center staff and engage a large number of people both at UMMC and throughout Mississippi as well as ongoing projects shepherded by individual center members.
