Charles DePaolo (English) will discuss his sabbatical project, "Mental Caliber: Joseph Lister and the Precepts of Medical Education." In the 1800's, Joseph Lister advocated for the structural reform of the medical curriculum into a multidiscplinary learning environment in which instructors and students interacted collaboratively, applied content to practice, and were sensitive to patient needs. Lister's reformist ideas have much in common with the objectives and curriculum of the University of Edinburgh Medical School today.
