Programs in Medical Classics
UCLA Programs in Medical Classics, now in its 25th year, is a series of presentations designed to enhance an appreciation of the links among famous medical writings, clinical practice, basic research, and humanistic scholarship. These meetings bring together a convivial group of individuals of scholarly tastes--both from the community and from UCLA faculty, students, and staff--for a lecture and an opportunity to discuss and examine texts and topics that embody the history of medicine, as well as the relations of medicine to broader cultural settings.
There is no charge for the lectures. Evening programs convene at 6:00 pm in the UCLA Faculty Center and will be followed by wine and softdrinks, conversation, and an opportunity to examine rare books and other items pertaining to each lecture. An optional dinner with the speakers, at $22 per person, will take place in the Faculty Center about 7:30 pm. An advance reservation is required for dinner; reservations may be made by calling 310.825.6940. Other programs meet as indicated.
