From humors to heart transplants, barbers to biotech, the history of medicine spans from ancient times to today. It is the story of men, methods, and inventions that strove to abate the terrible toll of disease.

This course will take a look at Western medicine as well as the important influence of Eastern approaches to disease and health. Our journey will use several dozen objects to illustrate the great achievements in medical science.
