The Department of History and Philosophy of Science offers three minor subjects (single paper options) to students taking the Biological and Biomedical Sciences (BBS) course in Part II of the Natural Sciences Tripos:

  • Subject 107: History and Ethics of Medicine

Students taking these options are welcome to attend any of the Department's Part IB and Part II lectures that are of interest to them, not just the lectures that are part of their course.
