With an emphasis on modern (late nineteenth to twenty-first century) American and European contexts, the History of Health Sciences program offered by the University of California, San Francisco investigates how medicine, health, and illness are historically perceived, and how these perceptions reflect and shape culture and society. Examining the role of the patient, provider, institution, and state in healthcare systems, the program provides students the ability to understand how medical ideas and practices have been deployed and negotiated in different historical contexts.
Graduates from the HHS program are prepared to undertake a wide variety of professional careers in academia, industry, government, and communications.
