MSH Graduate Student Liaison

The Program in Medicine, Science, and the Humanities funds a graduate student to work as a liaison between the MSH program and the larger academic community each academic year. The student’s graduate work should relate to the medical humanities or science, technology, and society (STS). A call for applications is circulated through JHU humanities departments each spring. For more information, contact the MSH Program Director.

MSH Teaching Fellowships 

The Program in Medicine, Science, and the Humanities has funding to support stipend, tuition support, and health insurance for a limited number of TAs for MSH courses each academic year. We look for graduate students in need of support or who would otherwise be interested in TAing courses related to medical humanities and/or science and technology studies.

MSH also sponsors Dean’s Teaching Fellowships for graduate student-taught courses related to the medical humanities and science and technology studies (STS) each year.
