PROF. EIVIND ENGEBRETSEN
I am a medical humanities scholar and a professor of interdisciplinary health science at the University of Oslo (UiO). I am the founding head of the Sustainable Health Unit (SUSTAINIT) at the Faculty of Medicine (UiO) and its associated Centre for Sustainable Healthcare Education (SHE), a Centre of Excellence in Education funded for 10 years. Additionally, I hold the position of Academic Chair of Global Health at the European University Alliance Circle U. From 2019 to 2022, I served as the elected Dean of Education at the Faculty of Medicine (UiO).
My research explores how knowledge about health, especially global health, is produced, legitimized, negotiated, documented, and exchanged throughout the global social fabric.
