Comedian and medical school graduate Harry Hill examines the history surrounding Galen's profound influence on medicine. The story begins with an exploration of how this Greek physician from the first century AD learned his trade by treating wounded gladiators and dissecting animals. We hear details of his seminal theories, and the reasons behind the restrictions on the work of himself and the proceeding generations of physicians. Most of all, the podcast uncovers how it was possible for Galen to leave a legacy so influential that it dominated medical theory across several cultures until the 16th century. The podcast is written by Miss Charlotte Ives, General Surgeon at South Tyneside District Hospital and is ideal for History students at any level.
