Will Robertson is a PhD Candidate in Anthropology at the University of Arizona with a concentration in medical anthropology. His dissertation research, being conducted at ADC-MidWest, focuses on patient-provider interactions and patient experiences of anal disease. He is interested in the role of culture in medical practice, minority health and health disparities, and patient and provider understandings of risk. During his time at ADC, he will be assisting with procedures, observing patient-provider interactions, and interviewing providers and patients about their experiences in the clinic to better understand the “human aspects” of medicine and health care.
Will completed his MA in Anthropology at The University of Texas at San Antonio, where he conducted research with queer medical students as they learned to become physicians and physicians’ assistants. He is trained in qualitative and mixed-methods data collection. He has published articles on medical education, gender and sexuality, and medical perceptions of risk, anal health, and sexuality. He has taught several courses at the university level on anthropology, health and medicine, gender and sexuality, kinship, and sociolinguistics.
In his personal time, he enjoys powerlifting, gaming, and hanging out with his dogs.
