Summary
The College of Physicians of Philadelphia developed the Humanism in Medicine Program to help enrich the curriculum of local medical schools in the area. This initiative was conceptualized in the early 2000s and ended in 2007, with funding supported by Horace W. Goldsmith and Arcadia Foundations. The Program aimed to bridge the arts and humanities with medicine, inviting visiting scholars, doubling as successful poets and writers, to present their compositions and artists to exhibit their creations surrounding the core theme of hope and healing amongst pain. The Records of the Humanism in Medicine Program span from 1986 to 2007. The collection consists mostly of paper materials (with some mixed materials) involving speaker lectures or artist exhibitions offered at The College of Physicians of Philadelphia (CPP) during these years. The bulk of the paper materials include printed email correspondence between CPP and visiting scholars/artists concerning the logistics of their presentation at the College, any corresponding promotional items, RSVPs, and speaker evaluations related to their event. Researchers interested in the arts and humanities in conjunction with medicine will appreciate learning about the body of work presented by past speakers and artists at the CPP. The section records might also spur researchers to further investigate these featured speakers and their contributions to society
