History of Medicine Webinar series 2020-21

During academic year 2020-21, Professor Martin Corbally, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Surgery at RCSI Bahrain hosted a Webinar series on the History of Medicine to survey the development of the medical field across the ages and its influence on present-day medical practice. The aim of the webinar series was to emphasise the important lessons to be learned across centuries, the need to constantly question the current status quo and embrace change as an inevitable aspect of the evolution of medicine and surgical practices.
