Edinburgh Centre for Medical Anthropology (EdCMA)
A world-leading academic unit dedicated to the anthropological study of the body, health and medicine
Welcome to EdCMA
We are excited to welcome new and returning students to EdCMA for the first semester of 2021/22. We've really missed seeing everyone in person, but have been delighted at how well our community has responded to the last year and a half, finding new spaces for intellectual and social collaboration!
We're busy planning online events, so keep an eye out for them on our events and news pages. We'd love to hear from you, so please get in touch with Dr Ayaz Qureshi if you have any questions or if you'd like to propose an event.
In the meantime, you can keep up-to-date with our activities on our blog sites, COVID-19 Perspectives blog and Health-E: The Edinburgh Health Blog, the Edinburgh-hosted Open Access journal, Medicine Anthropology Theory, and through our social media channels - Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Studying Medical Anthropology
We offer two MSc programmes, the Taught and Research MSc in Medical Anthropology. Both can be taken as routes into our dynamic PhD programme in Social Anthropology.
