Podcasting the History of Psychiatry: Malawi medical education

Press/Media: Relating to Research

School of History


In 2016 the Scottish Government gave £300k to the College of Medicine to train psychiatrists in a low-resource, under-medicalized environment. Free at the point of access, my podcasts are part of this initiative, but funded by the University of St Andrews.

All 44 episodes of my first series of podcasts about the history of psychiatry in Britain and Ireland since 1500 are being used by the College of Medicine, University of Malawi to train psychiatrists.
