UMHS Offering New History of Medicine Elective
UMHS will now be offering an elective course called the History of Medicine [MICM 0991]
with Dr Michael Doherty. There will be 5 total lectures, one hour each, held in the campus auditorium beginning at 11:30 on each of the following Tuesdays: May 24, June 14 & 21, July 12 & 19, 2016.
Applying for residency is very competitive; it is important to have extracurricular/volunteer activities on your resume. Those can be club activities, health fairs, elective courses, and so forth. It’s something you all should consider. The History of Medicine
elective is a good choice; it’s relevant, goes on your transcript, and you’re on campus anyway.
Why is this kid from 1958 going to see the butcher for a black eye?...
There is no fee for the course, and the only requirement for receiving credit is by attending all 5 sessions. If interested, please email Dr Doherty.
