Dr Baher IbrahimAffiliate in History; University of Glasgow, Core Psychiatry Trainee, West of Scotland
I am a Core Psychiatry Trainee in the West of Scotland and an Affiliate Researcher in History at the University of Glasgow. I studied medicine at Alexandria University in Egypt. After qualifying, I undertook a MA in Community Psychology at the American University of Cairo followed by a MSc in Global Mental Health at King’s College London and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. I recently completed a PhD in History at the University of Glasgow. I have presented my work at the universities of Glasgow, Birkbeck, Oxford, Cornell, and Sydney; and have an upcoming paper in a special issue of the Yearbook of Transnational History.

Research and Teaching Interests

My interests encompass the history and present of psychiatry, migration, trauma, medical humanitarianism, and transcultural mental health approaches. My PhD research lay at the nexus of these themes and explored the history of psychiatry in refugee camps and the emergence of mental health as a component of medical humanitarianism.
