Course Detail: ERHD015 - Medical Anthropology: Understanding Health Issues from a Comprehensive Perspective III
Have you ever wondered why our American public health and medical systems view and approach health and medical issues a certain way? This module will not only answer this question but it will also introduce you and walk you through the following issues such as: (a) Examining how the field of medical anthropology connects with the fields of medicine, public health, allied health, nursing and health education; (b) Investigating historically our biological and cultural adaptation patterns to specific diseases; (c) Discovering how our American health cultural perspective influences how we diagnose and treat major diseases in the United States; (d) Reviewing how ethnic populations adapt to our American public health and medical systems; and (e) Understanding how other countries may view public health and medical issues differently. If you are interested in any of these topics, then this module is for you.

Topics here include the culture and ethno medical studies, the Nocebo Phenomenon and Leprosy, culture and illness, and mental health.

Once you complete all four units: Medical Anthropology: Understanding Health from a Comprehensive Perspective I, II, III, IV you will be awarded a certificate of completion from East Carolina University.

Each module begins the 6th of every month (provided it does not fall on a weekend or holiday). You will receive a login instruction email prompting you to begin the module.
