HONR 2010G: Medical London: Culture and Context
Lead Instructor: Associate Professor J. Matthew Hoch, Ph.D. | email@example.com
Co-Instructor: Associate Dean Robin Sherman, Ph.D. | firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a three-credit, honors, humanities course with experiential learning. Class is held during the winter semester, with a one week trip to London during Spring Break. We will visit sites, museums and working labs in order to experience and observe first-hand the materials that were important to the development of the sciences of biology and medicine. The exact schedule will be discussed in class, but students will attend required trips with the instructors and arrange independent/small-group trips as part of their own research projects. Students will have free time to explore London and visit other sites of interest. This class will provide historical perspective on the development of medicine as a scientific discipline that will benefit all students, especially those interested in medical careers. The trip will be a great experience and fun too!
Field trips include The National Gallery, Westminster Abbey, The Natural History Museum, The Linnean Society Archives and Library, The Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons, the Alexander Fleming Laboratory, Charles Darwin’s Down House, The Worshipful Society of Apothecaries, The Olde Operating Theatre and many more.
We suggest that a budget of about $100 per day for expenses in London (meals, admission to extra sites etc.; a thrifty student could spend far less).
Travel study trips often require strenuous activity that may be difficult for some students. London is a modern, metropolitan city, so accommodations are available to meet disability and health needs. If you may require special accommodations to participate in a travel study trip, please contact us and we will discuss how to make this course happen for you.
