Exciting News: We are changing name! To ‘Department of Global Health & Social Medicine’

We are excited to announce our Department is changing its name: as from 1st August 2016, we are changing our name to Department of Global Health & Social Medicine.


imagesWe think this new name provides a better reflection of our growing portfolio of teaching and research in both global health and social medicine, our key role in the Kings-wide initiative on global health, and our wish to reimagine the idea of social medicine for the 21st century.

We remain an interdisciplinary department with a firm rooting in the social sciences, with research and teaching linked to philosophy, ethics, politics, history and the law, part of the School of Global affairs within the Faculty of Social Science and Public Policy. Our aim is to bring disciplinary and interdisciplinary research of the highest quality to bear upon local, national and transnational challenges of health equity and social justice across the life course.

The motto of the Department remains “Health is more than a medical matter“.

Applications for our Master’s programmes for entry September 2016 are still open for Home/EU students.
