History of teaching hospitals (Davis Lecture April 11)

Susan Lawrence, Ph.D.

During the April 11 Richard B. Davis, M.D., Ph.D., History of Medicine Lecture at UNMC, explore how charity patients became teaching objects and how seven major London hospitals evolved to become medical schools.

Susan Lawrence, Ph.D., associate professor of history at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will discuss these and other topics during the lecture.

When: 4 p.m.

Where: Mary Ann “Maisie” Paustian Amphitheater, Room 3001 in the Sorrell Center. A reception will follow in the Linder Reading Room, also in the Sorrell Center.

What: The lecture is sponsored by the McGoogan Library of Medicine and supported through an endowed fund created in 2008 by the late Dr. Davis, professor emeritus of internal medicine at UNMC, and his wife, Jean.

Dr. Davis created the lectureship to illustrate the impact of key scientific findings and to support special collections at the McGoogan Library, including works on the history of medicine.

Who: Dr. Lawrence is coordinator of the Humanities in Medicine Program, which offers an interdisciplinary minor to undergraduates interested in health care in its social context.
