This course is aimed at physical therapists and physicians who are interested in the successful and common links in the story of the history of medicine. The focus is the process of the advancement of medicine — it is the process of thinking. This story starts in the days of the Ancient Greeks around 500 B.C., then travels into the Roman times, the Dark Ages and the Renaissance. The lessons learned will then be taken across the ocean and applied to sports medicine and, finally, into baseball medicine. This is not so much a story of statistics and facts as it is a story of how we arrived at today and where we are going tomorrow. Hopefully, we can learn from the story: We won’t need to repeat history, but we can look at the commonalities in the progressive steps and invent our future.
