    Samantha Hurst, Ph.D. is a Project Scientist in the UCSD Department of Family Medicine and Public Health. As a medical anthropologist, Dr. Hurst’s area of content interest and expertise focuses on cross-cultural medicine and vulnerable populations. She is particularly interested in socio-cultural disparities in health and healthcare access, and gender-equity issues. She is an expert in the use of qualitative methodology and teaches qualitative methods and mixed methods research design in both the Masters of Public Health program and the Joint Doctoral Program in Public Health.

    Dr. Hurst's research collaborations span a rich variety of healthcare domains such as neurology, psychiatry, behavioral health, health policy, complimentary medicine, medical education, and tobacco prevention/education. For over two decades she has collaborated on projects working with a number of unique U.S. ethnic/cultural groups and international populations - American Indian, Australian Aborigine, First Nation [Canada], Maori [New Zealand], Somali-Americans, Yoruba [Nigeria], and U.S. combat veterans. These studies have included research such as alcohol and drug misuse, men’s health, youth violence prevention, sexual assault prevention and reproductive justice, psychological trauma and stress, cultural psychiatry, hypertension and secondary stroke prevention, and tobacco education/cessation/prevention.

    Dr. Hurst received her Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and completed her Post-Doctoral Fellowship training in Cultural Psychiatry and Medical Anthropology at the Alcohol Research Center at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla.
