The Medical Humanities Awards champion the application of the arts and humanities within interdisciplinary research, and recognise education and social action informed by the arts and humanities, which transform our understanding of health and social care, health, and/or wellbeing in their social, cultural, and political contexts.
The Awards recognise and showcase the very best research, impact, and leadership from this field of study. Funders hope it will encourage further valuable work at the interface between research in the arts and humanities and new insights into health, healthcare, and wellbeing.
Applications and nominations are invited under five categories, with the winner of each category being awarded a £5,000 prize at an award ceremony to be held in July 2020:
- Best Research
- Best Doctoral or Early Career Research
- Best International Research
- Best Community Led Project
- Leadership Award
