Hello! I've decided to do an EPQ with the title "How has ancient Greek medicine influenced modern western medicine" however I have has some trouble thinking of subtopics I can include.
So far I have come up with:
- Important Greek figures that influenced medicine (e.g Hippocrates)
- Comparison to Ancient Egyptian medicine (because I have to have to look at the opposite side of my argument - I'm arguing that ancient Greek medicine has influenced modern Western medicine the most)
- How ancient Greek myths link to what ancient Greek believed about medicine (I'm not too sure how I can make this link to be honest)

I'm not too sure how I can incorporate these subtopics in to my EPQ so if anyone has any ideas on better subtopics please help!

That sounds very interesting - I’m not an expert (but I did study the Medicine topic in History GCSE) but I’m saying it would be impressive if you could show a very high standard of understanding for the modern medicine side in addition to the Ancient History side which you sound very intelligent in.

I can help with other sides of the EPQ, as I got 50/50 for mine on ‘In what ways were there parallels between the evolution of the shape of coinage in Ancient Greece and Ancient China between 900 BC and 100 BC?’
