This chapter discusses a specific audience category for medical history: medical students. It explains the institutional context and the didactic choices made for the medical humanities course of the Utrecht medical curriculum, of which medical history is an integral part. By way of example, it elaborates on scientific literacy: a topic suggested by the academic reform movement Science in Transition. The chapter shows how the course tries to create reflexive citizen-physicians, defined as medical professionals with an awareness of the complex demands made by contemporary health care and society.
