History of Medicine MA dissertations. To be held at the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine on 16 May 2009 (360G-Wellcome-089364_Z_09_Z)
The intention of the meeting is to foster collaboration in History of Medicine MA programmes in the UK and Ireland through establishing joint training days. The meeting will enable students from such programmes to make short presentations of their MA dissertations, and to interact with and get feedback from their peers from other programmes, as well from tutors from other departments. The aim of the meeting is to establish a centralised platform for the training of History of Medicine MA students suitable for generic research skills. The most critical research component of the current programmes is the dissertation, which for a number of students, forms a point of departure for a subsequent History of Medicine Phd. The aim of the meeting is to better prepare students for their MA dissertations and for continuing research in the history of medicine.
