Geographical areas open. Evidence of high quality teaching, inclusive pedagogy, and supervision of a diverse student body is desirable. The Department of Social Studies of Medicine is a multidisciplinary department (anthropology, history, sociology, bio-medical ethics). The department sees itself as a bridge between the Faculties of Medicine and of Arts and a space for the analysis of the conceptual, practical and societal dimensions of biomedicine and other contemporary forms of medical thought and practice throughout the world.
