Margo Viniegra, Ph.D.
Marco’s work explores how to integrate different moments in the history of medicine with the modern discussion of how physicians learn and practice medicine, bringing a critical perspective to the understanding of medicine. He is interested in the relationship between patient and physician and physicians’ ability to speak to patients and family, managing expectations around health outcomes, managing patients’ perceptions of care; gender, race, and medical practice; the differences between reductive and holistic perspectives on health and disease, ethics and the inclusion of the patient in the medical process as well as learning to speak about the patient as a person.
Marco Viniegra received his PhD in History of Science from Harvard University specializing in history of medicine. He previously obtained an MA also in History of Science from Harvard University, and he holds a DEA in History and Civilization from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales and a BA in History from the Universidad National Autónoma de México.
He currently holds a position at the Science, Religion, and Culture Program at Harvard Divinity School as Research Associate as well as advisor for senior fellows.
