Despite being based in Europe, MAYS belongs to a broader scholarly community of medical anthropologists from across the world. With this page, we aim to create a repository of information on where Medical Anthropology is taught and discussed; in Europe and beyond.

Thanks to our regional liaisons, this page provides information about medical anthropology programs at various universities in different regions and countries. As the repository continues to grow, we encourage you to join our efforts and help fill in any missing information. We welcome additional information about existing countries as well as actively seek new regional liaisons for places that are so-far unlisted. Please contact us at and we will provide you with further information on how you can support this project.

We also hope to gather links to blogs, information outlets, and open journals through which anthropological works are being disseminated. We appreciate non-hierarchical resources that reach audiences within and beyond academia. If you want to add information about a new blog, network, or other resource related to medical anthropology, we look forward to hearing from you; please contact us at
