In Medicine, With History

Date Recorded: March 2, 2021

Description: What can the history of medicine offer us in the age of COVID-19? Why should physicians study a critical history of their profession? In conversation with his daughter, Dr. Rhona Seidelman, Dr. William Seidelman will reflect on the benefits and challenges of approaching a medical career with a historical outlook. The discussion will focus on Dr. Seidelman’s clinical work caring for patients from the earliest days of the AIDS epidemic and his forty years of scholarship on the history of medicine during the Nazi period, with an emphasis on the exploitation of the bodies of victims of Nazi terror, particularly the ethical challenges surrounding the use of the Pernkopf Atlas of Human Anatomy.
