Course Introduction

With this programme, we take a cultural and phenomenological approach to the anthropology of medicine. That is, we stress a truly cross'cultural method, one which unites all medical systems in a unified comparative perspective. This allows students to grasp the underlying principles and questions common to all therapeutic systems. Given the diversity of the School's courses, students may choose options which strengthen either the humanities or the development studies aspects of their interests.
