What made someone a Doctor in the year 1776? How is medicine different today? And how will it change in the future?
Set during the American Revolution, students will enter the world of Samuel Thompson – doctor, farmer, patriot. By becoming Doctor Thompson’s apprentices, they help diagnose and treat his patients – Students even create a specialized treatment plan including medicinal herbs from Doctor Thompson’s medicinal garden – all while avoiding being captured by the British!
Students will meet a current healthcare professional and are empowered to diagnose a fictional 21st century patient, while learning the methods and technologies doctors and scientists use to diagnose and treat patients today.
