A 2-week tour of London, York and Edinburgh with focus on the history of medicine through the lens of anthropology and the humanities. As we journey across the UK, we’ll explore the world of bodies, as they have existed in the rise of anatomical education, surgical experimentation, religious relic and literary phenomenon. Along the way, students will have time to roam cobbled streets surrounded by stunning architecture, explore cozy pubs and coffeehouses, and visit historical sites that make the UK one of the most desired destinations in the world.
