Program Director: Alexander Roedlach, SVD, Ph.D.
The Medical Anthropology graduate program is coordinated by the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Social Work, at Creighton's College of Arts and Sciences. All courses are delivered online. However, incoming students are required to participate in a four-day on-campus orientation before taking the first course.
The Medical Anthropology program is designed to provide a usable skill set for health and health care in an increasingly complex world through taking seriously the important factor of culture. This cultural approach to health and health care makes the program unique and complementary with other health-related programs. With its emphasis on fieldwork and cultural analysis in the light of biomedical knowledge, the program furthers the excellence of healthcare professionals. The program promotes strategies for equitable access to effective health care both domestically and globally.
All of our core courses are taught by full-time tenure-track and tenured faculty with terminal degrees in their fields, distinguishing this program from many comparable programs that rely extensively on adjunct and temporary teaching staff.
Creighton University's medical anthropology program is informed by Ignatian ideals that distinguish Jesuit education from other institutions of higher learning.
