Museum events and courses

The Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History runs events and courses to help medical professionals and members of the public develop and fine-tune their historical research skills.

Medical History Masterclass

Run by the museum and Monash University’s School of Philosophical, Historical and International Studies, the masterclass was held from 10am to 4pm on Saturday August 4 at ANZCA House, 630 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne.

The masterclass was facilitated by Associate Professor Paula Michaels. Paula Michaels’ research and teaching focuses on Twentieth Century world history. Her work bridges the histories of Eastern and Western Europe, integrating the USSR into a pan-European and global narrative through the study of social and cultural history. Her teaching is also part of Monash University’s International Studies program. Michaels studies the history of medicine, and is especially interested in the ways that medicine is mobilised to further political and social objectives. Her most recent book, Lamaze: An International History was published Oxford University Press in 2014.

Participants in the ANZCA Continuing Professional Development Program can claim attendance under the Knowledge and Skills category “short courses, workshops” for two credits per hour.
