Doctor Doctor! A new PhD in STS

2 November 2010


We here in STS extend our congratulations to Brendan Clarke, who passed his PhD viva yesterday, with only minor corrections requested for this thesis on Causality in Medicine. 

This is Brendan's second doctorate, counting his medical qualification. Brendan began his journey into philosophy of medicine via STS's intercalated BSc in philosophy, medicine, and society. Currently, he's contributing to the teaching programme, with modules in Philosophy of Biological Sciences, Evolution in Science and Culture, and a component for the Medical School's year 2 programme.
