Let me begin by stating that I am an undergrad with two semesters left in
anthropology. I have an interest in the field of medical anthropology,
however I am still researching the methods of a medical anthropologist,
to gain a better understanding of all what the field includes. Presently,
I am trying to complete a paper and I am desperate for immediate feedback on
the following issues, from a medical anthropologist... or anyone with their
1. An application of what type of work a medical anthropologist does
( I have read many journal articles, etc. But I want to know some
of your direct areas of study; like a survey.
2. How much medical training? How much about medicine is really known.
3. Practical interest to medical anthropologists: Immigrant
medical systems, why? Others?
4. How does ethnomedicine relate?
I hope that this is not too much to ask. I am looking forward to hearing
from anyone, soon! You can reply on the list if you want to educate
everyone else, or to me personally
Thank you in advance,
PS: I am so excited, this is the first time I have ever sent a message to
the list.... after reading everything on it for two semesters!
