Have a question about Medical Anthropology or want more information? Let us know.
Medical Anthropology is a subfield of anthropology that draws upon biological and sociocultural anthropology to understand human health and well-being. What makes medical anthropology unique is that it considers how human evolutionary history combines with people’s current cultural, economic and political context to shape their health. Medical anthropologists work in universities, hospitals and clinics, in public health and for national and international health agencies, as well as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) focused on health.
