Performing Medicine, Performing Surgery

In this lecture series, Professor Roger Kneebone continues the exploration of non-traditional aspects of medical education that he started at Gresham last year.

Medicine demands factual knowledge, physical skill and the ability to work with patients and colleagues. Most of the time clinicians learn from other clinicians, studying hard within a frame that discourages exploration outside medicine. By focusing on the performance of medicine, these lectures challenge this traditional frame by connecting with experts including polar explorers, fighter pilots, Savile Row tailors and forensic scientists. Other collaborations address wider problems in society, for example by involving young people in simulations which address the growing challenge of knife violence.

Throughout this series Professor Kneebone explores the idea of frames, using illustrations and conversation to ask what benefits may result from thinking widely and challenging longstanding assumptions.
