History of Medicine

 Medical Humanities VI - History of Medicine

The goal of this module is to teach you about how medicine developed since the ancient times until the modern medicine we all know today. You will learn about various medical discoveries that changed the course of history, as well as older (and often very brutal) medical practices. Some of the most important names of the pioneers of medical discoveries will contribute to your general knowledge, which we believe is appropriate for a future practicing physician.

All our class materials, including the schedule, student groups, tasks and grades will be provided on the Merlin e-learning platform (
you can access it here: Moodle - INTRANET). To log in, you will need to use the institutional e-mail that you received when you enrolled. 

Your exam for this course will be a short exam. Likewise, attendance is mandatory and is also part of your grade. You can find more information about this on Merlin - it will be added several days before the course begins.

More information about our department, our faculty members, and the overall goal of our medical humanities curriculum can be found at our 
Department's Website.
