Join Part 2 of the fourth and final module of the webinar series, where we will look at the legal challenges faced by the medical profession today and the views on the topic of the President of the History of Medicine Section.

Participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the relationship between medicine and the law with reference to the views of the individual practitioner
  • Acknowledge the approach to the law within medical history

The first part of the module will look at different approaches to writing the history of medicine, the influence of botany on medicine across centuries and the developments which have followed. Book your place for Part 1 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.
