History of Medicine

This elective is intended to combine the process of learning about the history of medicine with the student's own growing sense of identification with the profession. We hope to give students a deeper understanding of the historical context for the pressing issues of today's health care system, medical education, and medical research, plus needed perspective on the social, professional, and moral climate in which they will be practicing. This is a small, highly participatory seminar with occasional guest lecturers.
