Freshman Seminar: ARSC 198-616 The History of Surgery
Instructor: Wang, M
Schedule: MWF 2:00 - 2:50 PM
Linked With: ENGL 102-616 Comp II - Analysis & Argument
Schedule: MWF 3:00 - 3:50 PM
Who were the first surgeons? Does conflict bring new advances to medicine? How has the role of physicians in the media evolved over time? What is the future of surgery? In this seminar, students will explore the historical foundations of modern surgical practices. The class will consist of the review and discussion of primary and secondary sources, guest lecturers, and time spent at specialized facilities in the health science center such as the BATCAVE (the patient simulation center). An emphasis will be placed on small group discussions and presentations, and allowing students interested in medicine to get hands-on experience in a hospital setting and face-time with physicians.
