Topics for a medicine related project essay?

QUESTION
Topics for a medicine related project essay?
I’ve been asked to write an essay on a topic of my choice for a project.
I want to go on to study medicine at university so my teacher suggested that it be medicine-orientated.

One example of one that somebody has done previously is why MRSA is being found more and more.

I was thinking a pretty broad topic of “The history of medicine” i.e. how the practice of medicine originated and how it’s advanced.
Similarly “The advancement of surgery”.

I’m pretty stuck after that. Anyone got any suggestions?

ANSWER
I think “The advancement of surgery”might be too broad. Maybe you could do it on robotics:

Or, perhaps you could do your essay on the Human Genome Project:
