I chose this intersection of medical anthropology because as someone who’s studied Philosophy as their major and has taken a Ethics in Public Health care class it’s something I feel I have a little background on. Additionally, both my sister and mother have studied public health administration so I hear a little bit about it in many aspects. I personally would love a career that deals with public health and the ethical dilemmas involved with health care. There are a lot of different methods that may work provided the correct environment. It’s all about finding a balance of what is logical and what suits that population. This directly relates to the field of anthropology. Anthropologists study the science of people. They look at how they interact, what historical atmospheres changed their course of action and how they adapted to that. Decision making processes are examined in anthropology as well as in public health. For instance, if someone managed a hospital they would look at how that society gets sick, why they get sick, what is the best course of treatment as well as what kind of treatment they should provide. These are just some of the decisions that someone managing a hospital would make. Using anthropology to study the society in which that hospital was located in would benefit the manager tremendously.
