Event Details

Our special series of Reframed events reveal our collections in new ways – reframing our heritage to address issues of equality, diversity and inclusion. They feature the College’s Heritage team, and some special guests.

The medical heritage archive is a wonderful place to research and explore the history of medicine and medical professionals. However, how often do we locate the experience of the patient within medical archives? Join the College Heritage Team in conversation with Dr Gillean McDougall as we consider medical heritage from a ‘bottom-up’ perspective, examining the possibilities and limitations of exploring the patient’s voice within our collections.

This event is in-person only.
