CPS is arranging a PhD Course in the spring of 2022, titled "Opening Philosophy of Medicine to the Future by Integrating Historical Epistemology and STS".

This course will focus on the epistemology of evidence-based medicine (EBM) and of precision medicine (PM)—but seen through the lens of two canonical figures of science studies and historical epistemology: Ludwik Fleck and Georges Canguilhem. The lecturer is Professor Cornelius Borck (Lübeck, Germany).

The dates for the course is March 28-29 2022.
