A research paper that can be about any person or themes from the history of medicine. 9 pages minimum 12 max. 8-10 sources and must be from credible sources. It is fine to use the class text as a source which is The Greatest Benefit to Mankind by Roy Porter. I have yet to pick a topic of interest so I am leaving it pretty open although it does need to be approved by my instructor.
Structure of paper:
1)An introductory section that summarizes the issue in the history of medicine to be examined and tells what you plan to cover in the balance of the paper.
2)A section or two that traces the development of the issue historically.
3. A conclusion that ties ideas together and synthesizes the information brought out in the paper.
