The RSM History of Medicine Society presents a series of 2-part modules on The emergence of medicine and health care up to the present-day. This new venture on its first year is an innovative approach to present and promote the history of medicine, and appreciate and enhance the value of medical history to clinical practice from a range of different perspectives.
These lectures are aimed at a wide audience of medical practitioners, healthcare professionals, historians, and students. Our expert speakers will delve into the historical development of various specialties, including surgery, medicine, pathology or imaging, and the clinical disciplines of anaesthesia and intensive care. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop a real sense of medical history and explore how medicine has developed encouraging participants to study medical history in more detail.
