Description

A free talk by Dr Jessica M Dandona, US-UK Fulbright Scholar 2018–19, currently based at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee

This fascinating talk will discuss how materials such as wax models, teaching charts and human specimens were used to teach anatomy to medical school students at University College Dundee and the University of St Andrews at the end of the 19th century. How did these two very different institutions, one venerable and another only recently founded, come together to create a Medical School? In this talk, we will attempt to reconstruct what it might have been like to be a medical student in the 1890s - from the lecture theatre to the dissecting room, when and where did students study the body - and how?
