The past doesn’t just belong to historians. It belongs to everyone. That’s why I started The Chirurgeon’s Apprentice, so that I could share my knowledge of medical history with a wider audience. I currently have no institutional affiliation, nor do I make any money off the content I provide here. If you enjoy my articles, and would like to help defray some of the costs of running this website, please consider becoming a ‘Patreon’ of the blog by clicking HERE. In exchange for your support, you will receive various perks. This can be anything from access to Morbid Minute—a video I’ll release each month revealing a weird/gruesome fact about our medical past—to the first chapter of a novel I’m currently writing.
I really appreciate your generosity.
