Event description
A talk uncovering the stories behind history's revolutionary physicians

About this Event

Speaker: Professor Abraham Verghese, Stanford University Medical School

The commitment of physicians to the wellbeing of patients and society often puts them at odds with the state. So it is surprising how short the list of doctors is who followed their conscience and took up the cause of revolution, putting their lives and livelihoods at risk.

This lecture profiles a few individuals whose stories stand out; physicians whose revolutionary actions were an extension of their physicianhood and a natural consequence of upholding the oath they took on entering the profession.

Medical practitioners who are Fellows or Members of the College will be admitted free of charge.
