Right Turn: The evolution of medicine

Author: Stacey Johnson, 05/02/14


May is the month that students learn whether they’ve been accepted into medical programs at Canadian universities. Good luck kids! Good luck parents!

This infographic, on the evolution of medicine, comes courtesy of BestMedicalDegrees.com, an independent online publication that offers American-centric information for students who are considering a career in medicine. (FYI: Canada has excellent medical schools too.)

Peruse the infographic and share what you feel is missing. (Hint: the discovery of stem cells perhaps?)

Our regular feature, Right Turn, showcases the “lighter” side of stem cells and regenerative medicine. Every Friday, we will bring you cartoons, photos, videos and other content that may be just as thought provoking as the written submissions that you are used to finding here, but they definitely won’t be blogs.

As always, we welcome your feedback and we also welcome suitable submissions. Be creative! Use the right (!) side of your brain. Make us laugh! Let’s see if we can make this new direction a positive one for all of us. Send your submission to info(at)ccrm.ca.
