The History of Medicine
Lucent Books, 2001 - 128 Seiten
The profession of medicine has existed almost since the beginning of human history. Only after healing joined forces with science, however, did physicians make much progress in learning to prevent and heal injury and disease. Halting though it has been, the progress of medicine has also been marked by thrilling discoveries about how the human body functions and the forces that threaten health, leading to the amazing achievements that characterize medicine today.
