The Medical Humanities Graduate Programme
In 2023, a graduate programme in medical humanities was launched by the Centre for Medical Humanities at Uppsala University. The programme aims to create a milieu for interdisciplinary, border crossing research connected to central challenges for our society. It constitutes a nursery and platform for a new generation of researchers trained in interdisciplinary work in the field of medical humanities.
The graduate programme includes five PhD students with interdisciplinary projects within the field of medical humanities. Each project engages supervisors from both the disciplinary domain of medicine and pharmacy and the disciplinary domain of one from the domain of humanities and social science. The graduate programme is funded by the vice-chancellor of Uppsala University.
The Centre for Medical Humanities offers courses, a seminar series, workshops and social events throughout the year as part of the graduate programme. A list of courses offered within the frame of the programme is available below.
Ylva Söderfeldt, Director of the Centre for Medical Humanities, is responsible for the graduate programme. Erika Sigvardsdotter is the programme coordinator.
The programme is overseen by an international advisory board, consisting of Ericka Johnson, Professor at Tema Genus, Linköping University; Jeremy Greene, William H. Welch Professor of Medicine and the History of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University; and Mariacarla Gadebusch Bondio, Professor in Medical Humanities at Bonn University Hospital.
