The King's Anatomy Department

Did you know that as well as educating thousands of our undergraduate students every year, that the department is responsible and involved with educating surgeons, doctors, osteopaths, specialist nurses and many many other health professionals. These people travel from all over the globe, literally, for our expertise and facilities. The Anatomy department is now working with the very GP's that teach our undergraduates and teaching those GP's in clinical anatomy. If you want to be involved or know more about King's Anatomy Department external teaching, then contact me. We do far too much to list here.

Lecture in Life Sciences: Animals and their pathologists in London, c1850-1900

Prof Abigail Woods, Head of the Dept of the History of Human and Animal Health. 

This talk uses the surviving records of the once-thriving Pathological Society of London to explore the place of animals in the history of human medicine. These records reveal the many wild, domesticated, farmed and exotic animal pathologies that doctors studied, described and exhibited to each other. They show that in a 19th century world in which doctors lived, worked and played with animals, medicine was far more zoological in character than it is today.
