Whether you're a clinician or social scientist, teacher or aspiring global health worker, this program will help you understand the foundations of health, illness, and medical practice in a culturally diverse world, and give you the skills to bring about change. 

The Master of Culture, Health and Medicine (M CHAM) is the only program of its kind in Australia. Drawing on anthropological and other social science perspectives and technical expertise in health-related research and practice, it will provide you with a nuanced understanding of 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.

This interdisciplinary program is taught by leading academics, clinicians, and global health practitioners from across the university.
