Event description

Description

Speaker: Kristin Hussey (Curator, Royal College of Physicians of London)

Born into a middle-class family in 1578, William Harvey rose to fame as one of Britain’s foremost anatomists, Harvey’s discovery of the circulation of blood rocked the medical world of the time, published in his treatise On the Motion of the Heart and Blood. Physician to King Charles I and a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of London, William Harvey is one of history’s prominent figures.

As the RCPLondon enters its 500th year, this lecture reflects on the Harveian revolution and what Harvey means to physicians today.

This event is part of the Edinburgh History of Medicine Group, a collaboration with the University of Edinburgh.
