The Consortium for Culture and Medicine (CCM) is a cooperative interdisciplinary program of Le Moyne College, SUNY Upstate Medical University, and Syracuse University.
Founded in 1978, CCM focuses on the cultural, ethical, social and psychological dimensions of medicine and health care by
- offering accredited courses linking the humanities and social sciences to practice of medicine and healthcare
- sponsoring faculty seminars and community events
- encouraging interdisciplinary research in health care
Faculty members from the three cooperating institutions represent academic disciplines such as anthropology, economics, health policy, history, law, literature, medicine, medical ethics, philosophy, political science, public health, psychology, social work, and sociology.
CCM is administered by co-directors from each of the three schools in cooperation with a committee of College and University administrators from the participating institutions.
Members of the public who hold a bachelor's degree may register through any of the three institutions and pay the appropriate course fees.
For general information and information about where to register, contact Lois Dorschel or one of the co-directors.
