About GHSM

Global Health & Social Medicine at King’s is a unique interdisciplinary department founded in  2012  and grounded in the belief that health across the course of life is more than a medical matter, that illness and ageing are human experiences, shaped by language and meaning, by cultural beliefs and values, and by social, political and economic conditions.

At GHSM we explore the complex social determinants of health, illness and ageing, and the ways in which advances in biomedicine and biotechnology are changing expectations about life and health and the nature of medical practice. Our mission is to address the changing landscape of health and medicine from a social science perspective.

GHSM is located in the heart of London at the King’s College Strand Campus.

How to find us:

The GHSM office is in room D11  which is on the third floor of the East Wing, Strand Campus.
