Inter-university Master's Degree in Medical Anthropology and Global Health
This master's degree is the continuation of the URV-specific degree in Anthropology of Medicine (1994-2000), and the Master's Degree in Medical Anthropology and Global Health (2006-2014).
Its aim is to provide students with a solid foundation in the theories, techniques and methodologies of medical anthropology. On graduating they should be able to translate social problems into anthropological research questions and transform the research into practical policies, thus contributing to social innovation and new health care models.
It is taught over two years in both Romance languages and English. It is unique in southern Europe and acts as a link between Europe, Latin America and African countries.

1. Public and private agencies that provide assessment in the health sector.
2. International health, health promotion and education, and public health.
3. Teaching the sociology of health at universities and other institutions.
4. Health management and planning.
