Medical Anthropology Course Syllabi Archives now available

Course syllabi archives now available

“In order to support medical anthropologists and the study of medical anthropology globally, the Society for Medical Anthropology asked instructors to make their syllabi available to students, faculty wishing to design or redesign their own courses, and anyone seeking information about the field. We are very pleased to announce that 45 undergraduate syllabi and 15 graduate course syllabi are now available in the Resources section of the SMA website.

In keeping with SMA’s priorities, we hope to expand the Archives by offering syllabi that focus on decolonizing and anti-racist perspectives, that come from schools located outside the United States, that are taught in languages other than English, and that address the practice of medical anthropology. We believe that the Course Syllabi Archives will form an important resource, and we invite instructors to contribute their syllabi by sending them to

In closing I would like to thank all of the instructors who so generously shared their syllabi.

With all best wishes,
