MD 221 - Medicine and Culture

This course covers major concepts, theories, events, developments, and figures in medicine. Students will gain enhanced appreciation for the rich history of the profession, knowledge of famous individuals and important medical theories and trends, a deeper understanding of major developments in basic science and patient care, and an augmented perspective on how medicine might change throughout their careers. The course is organized thematically (history of anatomy, physiology, etc.) rather than chronologically, which will allow a sharper focus on issues of interest to students.
