Our students’ publications demonstrate how they thrive in SMS’s extraordinary intellectual environment. In recent years our doctoral students have had first-authored publications in the New England Journal of Medicine, Medical Anthropology Quarterly, Culture Health and Sexuality, Milbank Quarterly, Behavioral Medicine, the American Journal of Public Health, Human Organization, Global Public Health, Social Science and Medicine, Fertility and Sterility, and Ethos – to name just a few. Whether as sole authors or in collaboration with faculty mentors, our students’ productivity demonstrates their promise as the next generations’ intellectual leaders.
After completing their training, many SMS doctoral program grads have gone on to publish field-defining monographs and edited volumes. Examples that demonstrate the breadth and impact of the scholars that we train in SMS include:
