History of Science, Technology and Medicine
This pathway focuses on 19th and 20th century science, technology and medicine, their social and cultural backgrounds, and their implications for the present and future.
This pathway combines historical understanding of medicine and healthcare with diverse approaches from literary studies, the social sciences and the visual arts. It is available to intercalating medical students or as a standalone course.
