Medicine through time

I have recently relaunched all of my medicine resources - including new resources - on

The History of Medicine through time is a Schools History Project Development study at GCSE level.

This unit has recently been updated. New features include:

  1. More comprehensive coverage of the syllabus content. Over 50 new pages have been added to the narrative accounts in this section and there has been a major overhaul of the Public Health section.
  2. A focus on themes and factors. Understanding of themes and factors are critical when aiming for higher grades. These new units aim to give pupils a range of examples of how each theme or factor has influenced the development of medicine through time.
  3. Teaching resources. They were there before, but rather well hidden! A wider variety of teaching resources is now published on the site, including a range of audio-visual starter activities and a selection of useful revision aids. Resources will be added to the unit on a regular basis from now on - sign up to the newsletter to keep informed.
  4. Recommended books. A selection of books that I've made use of when planning my teaching of medicine through time along with links to revision guides and textbooks that have stood the test of time.

How to use this section:

Content areas are listed chronologically in the menu to the left of the screen. You will find additional content within each of these sub-units along with links to activities, resources and multimedia resources.

Pupils wanting to develop an awareness of the roles of themes and / or factors could start by exploring the Theme and Factors area of the menu. This will provide guidance that will be of use when looking through more detailed sections of the site.
