2019/20 Courses


Course Title: Progress at last! History of Medicine - 19th and 20th Centuries
Course Number: C2226592
Course Description: Explore the epidemics and public health problems between 1800 and 1930 and the extent to which progress was/wasn't made in responding to them. Consider the impact of the First World War on developments in surgery and the improvements made in medicine in wartime. Discover the changes that occurred in the understanding of disease and the emergence of a modern profession. Assess the increased involvement of women in medicine and the changing role of the hospital. There will also be some consideration of changes in colonial and imperial medicine. The course will look at developments relevant to medicine, surgery and public health in Europe as well as Britain. Please note this is a course focused on the social history of medicine, surgery and public health and it is aimed at beginners- it will therefore seek to provide an introductory overview of the subject and the social impact- not a detailed scientific or medical explanation of the areas covered.
