Proposed Session for SFAA in New Mexico on Sustaining Anthropological Engagement in Medical Schools.

Anthropologists have been a part of medical school education on and off since the 1950s.  This session outlines the history of anthropology involvement, roles and influences in medical schools.  We explore the various ways in which anthropologists are currently engaged in medical education and the barriers to sustained involvement. Is the current resurgence of anthropology and other social sciences in medicine a sustainable trend?  How can anthropologists continue to have a significant impact in medical education?You must be registered for the meeting before your abstract may be submitted.  The session proposal is being organized by Iveris Martinez, Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine and Dennis Wiedman, Department of Global and Sociocultural Studies at Florida International University.  If interested contact Iveris Martinez at imartine@fiu.edu by October 6, 2016.
