About Josephine T. V. Greenbrook

Background
Josephine T. V. Greenbrook is a psychologist - turned sociologist - turned medical ethicist and legal scholar, who ended up writing a doctoral thesis in law. Her work is inherently interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary. Her research and teaching cover a broad spectrum of the medical humanities and social sciences; including medical jurisprudence, practical ethics, medical psychology, medical sociology, medical anthropology, migration medicine, transcultural medicine, and medical education. She explores the social sciences, medicine, and the law, navigating the liminal spaces between these fields, with a specific focus on highlighting humanity and the socio-cultural (in all its complexity) in medical contexts and medical education.
