The Medical Artifact Collection at Western

 

Originating with the Faculty of Medicine at Western in the late nineteenth century, our collection contains over 1000 artifacts, which represent the practice and teaching of health and medicine in southwestern Ontario. It includes a range of objects related to cardiology, opthalmology, dentistry, pharmacology, surgery, homeopathy, obstretrics, phlebotomy, veterinary and military medicine, microscopy, anatomy, and alternative medicine from the late eighteenth to late twentieth centuries. Our mandate is to collect, preserve, research, and make accessible such material history within this region and time period. Visit our exhibits in Lawson Hall, or explore our website to learn more about our collection.
