The Medical Humanities Programme at TORCH is delighted to offer grants to support collaborative projects in all areas relating to Medical Humanities. We also welcome applications that are led by, or involve, postgraduate and/or early career scholars.

Medical Humanities are at the cutting edge of research in the arts, sciences, and humanities, and seek to address some of the most pressing concerns facing scholars, creative practitioners, and innovators from a broad range of backgrounds. Research in the Medical Humanities at Oxford is undertaken by a wide range of individual scholars, research groups, and large-scale projects, and supported by a variety of centres and faculties.
