Links to Case-histories of Transformational Medical Advances

Our case-histories (which we started writing started in 2014) reflect (and helped produce) ideas in my practical knowledge syllabus (and in this Critical Review essay).

An HBS elective, Lessons from Transformational Medical Advances (LTMA), will connect the case histories, propositions about practical knowledge, and the Critical Review essay.
