A patient's job is to tell the physician what hurts, and the physician's job is to fix it. But how does the physician know what is wrong? What becomes of the patient's story when the patient becomes a case? Addressing readers on both sides of the patient-physician encounter, Kathryn Hunter looks at medicine as an art that relies heavily on telling and interpreting a story--the patient's story of illness and its symptoms.

Indeed, the doctors, following Galen, may have been the more sophisticated in
their handling of ancient texts. Their annoyance at Scaliger may not just have
been because of his intervention in a medical debate, but because they were ...

Mit der Gründung des Corpus der antiken Ärzte an der Königlich Preußischen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin am Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts wurde die Erforschung der antiken Medizin zu einem integrierenden Bestandteil der Klassischen Philologie in Deutschland. Das Corpus Medicorum Graecorum, das eine wissenschaftsgeschichtliche Brückenfunktion zwischen Natur- und Geisteswissenschaften erfüllt, war von Anfang an auf internationale Kooperation ausgerichtet und ist bis heute weltweit das wissenschaftlich maßgebende Unternehmen für die Edition antiker medizinischer Texte. In den letzten Jahrzehnten ist, vor allem im europäischen Ausland und in den USA, das Interesse an der antiken Medizin in allen ihren Facetten stark gewachsen. Die am 14. und 15. Mai 2004 von der Berlin-Brandenburgischen Akademie der Wissenschaften veranstaltete und der DFG finanzierte internationale Fachkonferenz verfolgte das Ziel, die Editionsphilologie auf diesem Gebiet zu stimulieren, auf dem sich philologische Arbeit mit medizinisch-naturwissenschaftlichen Fragestellungen verbindet. Ausgewiesene Spezialisten nahmen als Referenten an der Konferenz teil, die dem Arbeitsstellenleiter des CMG, Dr. sc. Diethard Nickel, anlässlich seines 65. Geburtstages gewidmet war.

The atrocities committed by Nazi physicians and researchers during World War II prompted the development of the Nuremberg Code to define the ethics of modern medical experimentation utilizing human subjects. Since its enunciation, the Code has been viewed as one of the cornerstones of modern bioethical thought. The sources and ramifications of this important document are thoroughly discussed in this book by a distinguished roster of contemporary professionals from the fields of history, philosophy, medicine, and law. Contributors also include the chief prosecutor of the Nuremberg Military Tribunal and a moving account by a survivor of the Mengele Twin Experiments. The book sheds light on keenly debated issues of both science and jurisprudence, including the ethics of human experimentation; the doctrine of informed consent; and the Code's impact on today's international human rights agenda. The historical setting of the Code's creation, some modern parallels, and the current attitude of German physicians toward the crimes of the Nazi era, are discussed in early chapters. The book progresses to a powerful account of the Doctors' Trial at Nuremberg, its resulting verdict, and the Code's development. The Code's contemporary influence on both American and international law is examined in its historical context and discussed in terms of its universality: are the foundational ethics of the Code as valid today as when it was originally penned? The editors conclude with a chapter on foreseeable future developments and a proposal for an international covenant on human experimentation enforced by an international court. A major work in medical law and ethics, this volume provides stimulating, provocative reading for physicians, legal professionals, bioethicists, historians, biomedical researchers, and concerned laypersons.

"A brilliant attempt to explain the profound historical crisis into which medicine had plummeted during the Nazi period with the tried methods of social history.--Historische Zeitschrift "The author has drawn from an extraordinary range of sources, and the weight of evidence he compiles will certainly give pause to anyone who still wants to believe that professionals kept their hands clean in this era of great and methodical crimes.--Journal of Modern History "Kater's important book deserves close attention from historians of medicine and German historians alike.--Isis In this history of medicine and the medical profession in the Third Reich, Michael Kater examines the career patterns, educational training, professional organization, and political socialization of German physicians under Hitler. His discussion ranges widely, from doctors who participated in Nazi atrocities, to those who actively resisted the regime's perversion of healing, to the vast majority whose ideology and behavior fell somewhere between the two extremes. He also takes a chilling look at the post-Hitler medical establishment's problematic relationship to the Nazi past. -->

Many refugees and asylum seekers now in the United Kingdom have trained and worked as doctors, nurses, midwives and other professionals allied to medicine in the countries from which they have departed. However, refugees face considerable problems in their quest to continue or resume their careers as health professionals in the UK. This book has brought together authors from varying organisations and professional backgrounds who are dedicated to supporting the integration of refugee doctors into the National Health Service workforce and it is a useful handbook for refugee doctors themselves. It will help all refugee doctors use their qualifications and expertise in the UK, and maximise their contributions to the NHS workforce. (Adapted from publisher's abstract).

Understanding Doctors' Performance addresses possible reasons why doctors under-perform, covering specific areas such as education and training, physical and mental health, workload, personality, organisational culture, drug and alcohol misuse, and cognitive impairment. It draws together evidence, and describes the factors (apart from clinical competence) that adversely affect performance and how they can be prevented, identified, assessed and addressed. This practical and easy to read book is invaluable for NHS managers, medical directors, chief executives and board members, along with direct.

"Many of the goals of South Africa’s new democracy depend on the production of professionals who have not only the knowledge and skills to make our country globally competitive, but also a commitment to working and living here. Despite numerous reforms, the South African health system, ten years into democracy, remains divided: first world private care that ranks with middle income countries internationally at the one end, and at the other extreme, in the rural public sector in particular, conditions that are superior only to the poorest of African countries. Much work has been done to change medical school curricula in line with the primary health-care focus of government policy, and international trends towards problem-based learning. The student profile in medical schools is now not only more representative of the demographics of South Africa, but also reveals a significant increase in female students. Whether these students will stay in the country after graduating, and serve where they are needed most, remains to be seen."--Publisher's website.
