Birkbeck offers both taught and research postgraduate degrees, with a unique focus on the application of critical ideas from the humanities to clinical practice and patient care.

Our MA Medical Humanities draws together the emergent fields of medical humanities and intercultural medicine to explore and develop the lived experience of clinicians in the everyday complexities of real-life clinical settings as they interact with patients and cultures. For more information, and to apply, please visit our programme page.

We also welcome applications from both humanities postgraduate students and clinicians who are interested in undertaking PhD research in medical humanities. More information, including details of how to apply, is available on our course listings.
