Scope and Contents

The Medical Center Hour is a public forum on medical and society at the UVA School of Medicine. The lecture series is run by the Center for Health Humanities and Ethics at the UVA School of Medicine, previously known as the Center for Biomedical Ethics and Humanities, and originally founded as the Program of Humanities in Medicine by Dr. Edward W. Hook, former Professor and Chair of the UVA Department of Medicine. Materials in this sub-series include lecture recordings, handouts, transcripts, program schedules, and posters. Available materials vary by year and lecture. Many of the Medical Center Hour programs were recorded and are available for viewing. Presently the best way to search Medical Center Hour recordings is through Virgo, the UVA Library Catalog:
