Richard’s Answer

We had no history classes in medical school. There's plenty of information without learning outdated techniques (like administering leeches!)

Rahul’s Answer

No, But you get a chance to be awestruck by the way individuals were inspired to look at something around them with a different perspective and achieve a semblance of greatness. Be the change that you want to see around yourself.

Philomena’s Answer

Yes you will learn medical history in med school at least where I'm currently schooling. it is not really broad or intensive, its summarized in a topic. this is usually to help you know the founding fathers of medicine and how medicine has progressed till now. for example, it helps you know about the Hippocrates oath
