Hey Scholar Owl!

For next week, make sure that you’ve read the “Ambroise Paré: Father of Modern Surgery (version 2)” blog post. Be sure to follow the links for the Hôtel-Dieu, Religious Wars and either of the Italian Wars links. This is going to give you the historical context of Paré’s life.

      P should have been 14 and O should have been 9.
      So, what’s the difference between etiology and pathology? It’s pretty subtle. Etiology refers to the many factors coming together to cause an illness. While pathology is the study of the etiology of illness. If you look back to the Galen stuff, pathology was defined as “the science or the study of the origin, nature, and course of diseases.” Make sense?
