Lecture with Prof. Dr. Katherine Hall

Ancient Medical History: Why Study it if You Are a Doctor?

 

Studying medicine is an exhausting business. There is so much science to learn that medical students can wonder why bother with studying the arts and humanities. I will draw on my professional and personal experience to make a case for not only why a medical student should bother with the humanities, but that they should keep it central to their learning, for the sake of both themselves and their future patients. Much of my discussion will center on my own personal passion – ancient medical history – but I will also illustrate my talk with examples from other humanities and the arts, including some specifically from my home, New Zealand.
