Confluence: Medical Humanities Lecture Series of UCMS, Delhi

University College of Medical Sciences (UCMS), Delhi was the first medical school in India to inculcate humanities among medical students, as well as among teaching and non-teaching staff, in the form of a ‘Medical Humanities Group (MHG)’. Initially the activities were directed towards sharing literature on medical humanities, with a bias to our own culture; these include poetry in the Indian languages (Hindi) initially. Student-led meetings in faculty presence were held during lunchtime in the inaugural year. From the second year of conception, ‘Confluence’ was contrived as a colloquium whereby art and medicine could be discussed and appreciated in togetherness. It began as a lecture series comprising of eminent guest lectures.
