Medical Anthropology is a pioneer Master programme unique in East and Central Africa, hosted by Gulu University’s Faculty of Medicine and the Department of Mental Health. It is a multidisciplinary programme which aims to equip candidates with skills and competencies in Culture, Health and Illness.
This is a fulltime two-year programme. Candidates admitted for Master of Medical Anthropology undergo rigorous and participatory training for the first year, and in the second year, they are required to conduct ethnographic studies in a topic of their choice. Briefly speaking, ethnographic studies are in-depth qualitative studies whereby our master students interact with various communities and hospitals to explore the interplay between culture, health and illness. During the first year of study our master students are guided by a technical team comprised of highly skilled academic staff from Gulu University, the Medical University of Vienna, University of Amsterdam, Leiden University Medical Centre, Free University Berlin, The Catholic University of East Africa, Makerere University, University of Kansas, Martin Luther University of Halle- Wittenberg, Bayreuth University, London School of Economics and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
