Originating with the Faculty of Medicine at Western in the late nineteenth century, our collection contains over 1200 artifacts which represent the practice and teaching of health and medicine in southwestern Ontario. It includes objects related to cardiology, ophthalmology, dentistry, pharmacology, surgery, homeopathy, obstetrics, phlebotomy, veterinary and military medicine, microscopy, anatomy, and alternative medicine from the late eighteenth century until now.

Our mandate is to collect, preserve, research, and make accessible such material history within this region and time period.
