Eivind Engebretsen


I am a medical humanities scholar and a professor of interdisciplinary health science at the University of Oslo.  I'm also the Vice-Dean for Postgraduate Studies at the Faculty of Medicine, the founding Executive Chair of Centre for Sustainable Healthcare Education (SHE), a Centre of Excellence in Education funded for 10 years, and an Academic Chair of Global Health at Circle U. European University Alliance. 


In my research, I explore how knowledge about health, especially global health, is produced, legitimized, negotiated, documented, and exchanged throughout the global social fabric.
