AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

  • To enable the student to address issues concerning health, the environment (biotic and abiotic), and disease through an "anthropological perspective."
  • To become aware of the close relationship between humans and their natural and cultural environment.

EXPECTED LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • To have acquired adequate knowledge and an effective understanding of the concepts expressed during the lectures.
  • To apply the knowledge acquired and to understand and solve problems related to the anthropology of health in all its extensions.
  • To use both conceptually and operationally the acquired knowledge with autonomous evaluation ability and skills in different application contexts.
  • To develop adequate learning skills to enable them to continue to explore the main themes of the discipline independently, especially in the work contexts in which they will be working.

TEACHING METHODS

Classroom activities will be complemented by seminar sessions with contributions from an integrated cultural bioscientific and humanistic perspective. In particular, insights into the history of medical education and the anthropology of health and care.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

  • Definition and fields of anthropology
  • The concept of normality
  • The perennial osmosis between nature and culture: the example of secular trends
