Le role de la Grande Guerre dans la chirurgie américaine

Caring for the Wounded: How the Great War Medical Experience Shaped Post-War American Surgery

Dr Dale C. Smith, Professor of Military Medicine & History

Visiting Speaker Series in the History of Medicine at Western University

Wednesday, October 21st from 6-7 p.m.

Western University, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, room DSB 1002

Though initially unprepared to treat the combatants of a modern war, as the First World War progressed, American physicians effectively developed new skills which improved surgical outcomes, advanced the general understanding of shock, and transformed patient care in the wartime hospitals. This lecture will examine the many ways that physicians responded to the challenges of doctoring during the war and will discuss how these medical experiences were used to transform surgery in the post-war United States. 

There is also more information on our history of medicine website at: where you can learn more about the talk, the speaker and the new series.
