This is Part 1 of the two-part module Under the knife, the second module of the new webinar series by the History of Medicine Society running from October 2022 until May 2023.

Join us for the first part of the module to learn about the contributions made by surgeons in times of conflict and their legacy relating to surgery in general. During this webinar, you will look at two forgotten case studies aiming to encourage research in medical history and its value in developing medical history.

During this webinar, you will: 

  • Outline the various conflicts within surgery
  • Discuss pivotal conflicts within the field of surgery that has shaped practises of today
  • Outline key examples that discuss how specialisms inform surgical knowledge and training
  • Review the issues specialisms create concerning the management of patients

The second part of this module will look at the history of gynaecology and the key developments which continue to define its development as a modern specialism in response to the needs of patients. Book your place for Part 2 by clicking here.

Each session is led by a renowned expert who will discuss key developments within their respective specialism in ways which promote both an innovative appreciation of medical history as well as encourage future scholarship. There are two lectures of 40 minutes which will continue to be delivered online. However, participants are again encouraged to engage fully with each speaker through an interactive question and answer facility.

This season will aim at expanding the discussion relating to what we mean by medical history by moving away from its more traditional model in order to appreciate its continued relevance within both a formal and informal setting. Please note that whilst the programme is designed to be complementary to previous sessions, earlier attendance is not a prerequisite for participation. International audiences continue to be warmly welcomed.

This webinar is available for on-demand viewing. The webinar recording will be available for registered event participants up to 60 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
