Health History Futures: The MSc in Health History Programme

Project Details


The opportunity to renew the Wellcome Trust (WT) Masters Programme Award comes at an exciting time for the M.Sc. in Health History (HH) at the CSHHH Glasgow. The purposes of the initial award were to; enable UK based applicants to study on the degree at a time of growing demand for teaching in the field; to drive connections with students from outside of the UK as Health History develops in Asia and Africa. The Centre has proven able to meet these objectives, having funded one South African and two UK students to date. All were integrated successfully into a student body that includes those from
partner institutions in Shanghai through the WT funded Medical Humanities China-UK (MHCUK) programme. This proposal will secure further resources for the development of this increasingly diverse Medical Humanities student community at a time when the M.Sc. HH continues to grow new capacities
for career-building and training in partnerships both within, and beyond, academia. Its international scope also prepares it to actively engage in the re-establishment of collaborations around the globe in the wake of disruption caused by COVID-19 by placing the next generation of Health History scholars at
the heart of this process.
