The aim of this module is to offer instruction in the practical skills necessary to develop as Medical Humanities scholars, everything from how to read a set of medical case notes to using archives of texts and illustrated sources. The course is intended to complement the core course, Themes in the Medical Humanities, and it is envisaged that each skills session will last an hour each week and will take place before the core course two-hour seminars. The use of archives is a complex matter and a number of sessions have been set aside for it. Likewise, the writing of a dissertation may come easier to candidates who have the benefit of a humanities training than those with a science background so 6 hours have been set aside for dissertation writing workshops.
