The scope of medical history reveals a compelling story. In this course, surgeon and best-selling author Dr. Sherwin Nuland draws on the lives of 12 of medicine's greatest contributors to tell the human story behind the development of Western scientific medicine since ancient Greece. You will discuss the contributions of Hippocrates, Vesalius, Lister, Taussig, and others. While medical science is described to some degree, this course focuses on personalities and tells the story of medicine, and does not contain the wealth of scientific detail of a pure science course. The focus here is on medical history. Dr. Nuland (M.D., Yale School of Medicine) brings to each lecture marvelous skills in storytelling and in translating medical and other scientific issues into layman's language.
