Assistant Professor in the CUHK Department of Anthropology Dr. Hsuan-Ying Huang describes himself as “one psychiatrist and half an anthropologist”. He obtained an M.D. from National Taiwan University in 2003 and a Ph.D. in Social Anthropology from Harvard University in 2013. Huang emphasizes the importance of looking at medical systems and practices from a cultural and social point of view.
