Ruth Berggren, M.D., is director of the Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics.
Three Health Science Center medical student and resident education programs are among only six programs statewide to receive 2008 teaching grants from The University of Texas System. The programs will develop a case-based virtual education resource; augment community service learning activities of the Center for Medical Humanities & Ethics; and create an educational interdisciplinary intervention that trains residents and students in palliative care. The goal is to produce physicians who are educationally outstanding, compassionate and service oriented.
