PROF. EIVIND ENGEBRETSEN
I am a medical humanities scholar and a professor of interdisciplinary health science at the University of Oslo (UiO). I'm the founding director 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. In addition, I am an Academic Chair of Global Health at the European University Alliance Circle U. From 2019 to 2022 I was the elected Dean of Education at the Faculty of Medicine (UiO).
In my research, I explore how knowledge about health, especially global health, is produced, legitimized, negotiated, documented, and exchanged throughout the global social fabric.
