The Department of History and Philosophy of Medicine at KUMC sponsors a series of luncheon seminars for faculty and graduate students interested in any aspect of the history and philosophy of medicine and its allied sciences. The primary purpose of these seminars is to allow participants an opportunity to receive feedback on works in progress, and in the process, develop more fully a sense of community among local scholars engaged in research in these areas.
The series typically meets once a month throughout the academic year. If you are interested in presenting at one of these luncheon seminars, or would like to be on our email list, please contact Ryan Fagan at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (913) 588-7087.
