During the 150 years covered by the course, the basis of modern medicine was established and a unified and a regulated profession emerged.

The course is constructed of self-contained sessions covering topics such as Surgery, Education, Public Health, Women, War and Medicine, General Practice, Dentistry and Unorthodox Practice which combine to produce a picture of developments over the 150 year period.
