In GCSE History, the world of medicine and the advancements that have been made over time, is one subject that is looked at. One period studied is that of the Middle Ages.
The collapse of the Roman Empire damaged medicine, but Islamic scholars, for example, continued to develop medical knowledge and techniques both in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world. Medical schools flourished in continental Europe, in the latter part of the Middle Ages, but the profession was wrong-footed by the arrival of the Black Death.
