The Centre's members are involved in providing a wide variety of post-graduate training. They offer several modules related to the history of medicine and health through through the Department of History's taught M.A. programmes. Post-graduate training in the history of medicine and health is also provided through the M.A. in History by research.
The Centre for Global Health Histories is also currently involved in the development of a new, inter-disciplinary M.A. in the Medical Humanities that will be housed within the Department of History and draw upon the strengths of all of University of York's departments.
The Centre's members are keen to supervise Ph.D. students and sponsor potential students for funding from UK and international agencies. This training is provided through two avenues: the primary supervisor and Thesis Advisory Panels (TAP), which are composed of three academics (including the primary supervisor). The availability of TAP-based supervision makes it possible for the Centre to provide unique, inter-disciplinary training in the history of medicine and health, as well as the medical humanities (TAP members can be drawn from all departments within the University of York).
The Centre for Global Health Histories is involved in setting up a dedicated internship scheme for post-graduate students based at the University of York in association with the World Health Organization. Providing unparalleled experience of global health, this scheme will be closely tied to formal teaching programmes. Some funding will be available for these internships on a competitive basis.
Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Professor Sanjoy Bhattacharya, the Director of the Centre for Global Health Histories (email@example.com) or the Graduate Administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org).
