Reports of the Institute Fellow 1973-1974
Pellegrino, Edmund D.
McElhinney, Thomas K.
In June, 1973, the Institute on Human Values in Medicine selected eighteen individuals to whom it awarded its first Fellowships in Human Values and Medicine. Funds for these awards were provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities through its supporting grant to the Institute. The initiation of this fellowship program reflected the Institute's awareness of the need to support faculty development so that appropriately trained persons can be available for emerging programs for teaching human values as part of health professional education. To teach effectively at the interface of medicine and the humanities requires unusual cross-disciplinary skills, and this is the kind of study that the Institute Fellowships were intended to promote.
