Are you or your students thinking of a doctorate in medical humanities? Apply to study at the Centre for Medical Humanities!


The Durham Centre for Medical Humanities is keen to support applications to the University’s various sources of funding for students holding, or expecting to hold, a first degree at 2:i level in relevant disciplines across the humanities, social sciences or medical sciences.

The deadline for applications for most sources of funding falls early in 2013, mostly around February. If you have an idea or general area of interest for future study that you think falls within the remit of the Medical Humanities, do contact the Centre or an appropriate member of academic staff to discuss and develop your ideas further.
