"How did your history degree from U of R help you prepare for your profession?"

My training in the Department of History at Rochester taught me to read texts with a critical perspective and turned me into a proficient writer. These tools have served me well in science and medicine. Additionally, it was Ted Brown who first introduced me to the history of psychiatry with Freud's introductory lectures, and various seminars during my four years.
