spirituality and medicine:
curriculum development project


Examples of courses involving spirituality already in existence


In 2007 both Neely and Minford and Randall and Goulding both conducted similar questionnaire-based surveys of the level of spirituality teaching in UK medical schools.



Below are some examples of courses already running that specifically address spirituality, shared by kind permission of the medical schools running them. Please read and be inspired. There is also a description of how spirituality teaching has taken off in American medical schools over the past decade or so. We are keen to expand this list of sample courses, so if you have a course teaching medical students about spirituality, please contact us.


The Spirituality and Medicine Curriculum Development Project is funded by the Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry.
