The Making of Modern Medicine

Free read The Making of Modern Medicine Summary í eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Michael Bliss Michael Bliss ↠ 8 Summary At the dawn of the twenty first century we have become accustomed to medical breakthroughs and conditioned to assume that regardless of illnesses doctors almost certainly will be able to help not just by diagnosing us and alleviating our pain but by actually treating or even curing diseases and significantly improving our lives    For most of human history however that was far from the case as veteran medical historian Michael Bliss explains in The Making of Modern Medicine Focusin. This short book made even shorter text wise by a handful of photosillustrations in each chapter captures a series of lectures given by Dr Bliss I concur with another reviewer here that as such it s really of a summary of three of Dr Bliss s books the ones about smallpox in Montreal William Osler and the discovery of insulin respectively The lectureschapters are very short and cursory or to put it another way just long enough for Bliss to make all his claims ie to present the major claims from whatever book but not long enough to present much evidence for them For example I was left wondering what evidence he had of superstitiousreligious feelings about medicinedoctors among the French Canadians in Montreal during the smallpox epidemic Having recently been to uebec it was interesting to read about the smallpox outbreak in Montreal and how some Canadian medical schools actually fared well in the Flexner Report in part because they were likely to take after their European counterparts than American med schools As significant as Osler was histories focused on great men and great institutions seem a little passe I m sure Bliss was nuanced about Osler in his book length treatment of his life
