Delves into the history of rheumatology and modern-day rheumatology practice.
In this fortnight’s episode we explore the past and present of rheumatology. Dubious diagnoses, a bit of class prejudice and sexism and 18th century occupational health are all in here.
Then we talk to Professor Frances Williams about her experiences working as a consultant rheumatologist.
And, to finish off, we explore Ruben’s The Three Graces and the perils of diagnosing historical figures, both real and fictional, with 21st century diseases.
