Program Summary & Location
This course will take advantage of the many important historical sites and museums of medical history in London and the surrounding area to provide an engaging curriculum in a historic and exciting location. The course will focus on the history of health and healing, and the evolution of our understanding of medicine and healthcare over time. Students will gain a broad understanding of the critical importance of the
application of scientific reasoning to the field of medicine and the role societies play in fostering health. The learning objectives support a foundation for a better understanding of human complexity and variability, ultimately leading to better empathy and communication skills. In addition, the focus of this course aligns well with the growing recognition of the need for future healthcare workers to explore the broader social, historic, and economic context in which they will work.
This course will take place in London, UK. London is a city steeped in medical history with over a dozen museums of medical history and historical sites, providing an engaging curriculum to follow the history of medicine and nursing over the past 500 years. London is the home of 17th century operating rooms, the birthplace of public health, and home to luminaries like John Hunter, John Snow, Florence Nightingale, and Alexander Fleming. We will visit many of these historical sites and view historical artifacts as we survey the world’s healing traditions and the history of Western medicine.
