About this event

  • Date and time Wed 2 Dec 2020 from 6:00pm to 7:35pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by History of Medicine Society

This webinar is devoted to the Bynum lectures of 2019-20, which was postponed due to COVID-19, and of 2020-21 sessions. This is an opportunity to take a look back to the 19th century and illustrate the lives of medical people and medical students at the time of a surgical revolution.

Viewers will be able to:

  • Become aware of the challenges of medical lives in times of surgical revolution
  • Understand the place in society of medical figures in the 18th and 19th centuries
  • Understand the historical determinants of pandemics and medical responses to them, drawn from numerous C20th and C21st examples
  • Recognise in the context of a pandemic such as COVID-19, the complex and shifting interactions of reductionist disease models, with tried-and-tested public health interventions and clinical realities

The History of Medicine Society was founded in 1912 by Sir William Osler, its first President. These talks continue to reveal the importance of learning from the lessons of the past to apply to the present and future. The Society reaches out, inter alia, to clinicians of every specialty (including students), medical scientists, health care professionals, and other interested professionals and members of the general public (e.g. journalists and teachers).
