    Professor Devine's research and teaching interests focus on the social, cultural and military history of the United States, particularly the Civil War era, with a special interest in medicine and science during and after the war. Her first book, Learning from the Wounded: The Civil War and the Rise of American Medical Science. (The University of North Carolina Press, 2014), examines the work of doctors who served in the Union Medical Department, and explores how their innovations in the midst of crisis transformed northern medical education and gave rise to the healing power of modern health science.
    Professor Devine's next research project tentatively entitled Science and the Practice of Medicine in the Civil War South and Reconstruction examines medical practice in the Civil War south, which will be published as a companion volume to her work on medical practice in the north. She is also working on two commissioned works from the United States Army Medical Department in conjunction with the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, which examine the larger impact of war on American medicine.

Good so far

The first episode was interesting, but I think you’d have to already be interested to stick it out until the end. I feel like there’s a lot of potential because I saw the host on C-Span & he was great.

Intriguing topics

I have recently become fascinated by Civil War medicine. I am big fan of the YouTube channel and was glad to see there was a podcast as well. Hopefully there will be more episodes soon, as podcast are more digestible on the job for me than the YouTube lectures/discussions. Cheers and thanks - Justice
