Founded in 1986, the Siena Humanities in Medicine Program is the first of its kind in the country. The program places a special emphasis on combining humanities, ethics, and service with medicine. Students learn about the value of serving others and grow into powerful servant leaders. Here, we create physicians who treat the patient and not just the disease.
Students accepted into the program earn a Biology B.A. degree from Siena and must complete a minor in the School of Liberal Arts. Students then matriculate to Albany Medical College where they receive an M.D. upon completion of their medical studies.
- B.A./M.D. degree that emphasizes the humanities and ethics with a required minor outside the sciences (Lots of Saints choose Franciscan Service & Advocacy, Spanish, Psychology, or Political Science)
