The Master of Culture, Health and Medicine (MCHAM) is the only program of its kind in Australia. Drawing on anthropological and other social science perspectives, and technical expertise in healthrelated research and practice, you will understand the nature of health, sickness, and healing in a  local and global context. You will emerge with the skills to undertake social and cultural analysis of health policy and practices, and to effect change in a health setting.

Career options

MCHAM is appropriate for students who are already in the medical and health professions and would like additional training in medical anthropology to advance their careers. MCHAM is also for students with some experience in anthropology who would like to enter the medical and health professions, public health sector, or work with organisations focused on health-related policy, education and development, global health, and disease prevention. 

The degree also prepares students for a PhD program in medical anthropology and interdisciplinary health studies.
