Medicinal History

In order to strengthen Medicinal history within the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy a senior lecturer was appointed from the year of 2009. A course in Medicinal history is carried out yearly. Introduction lectures with special medicinal history themes are performed. Students can get guidance and supervision in medical history projects. There is a close collaboration with the Uppsala Medical History Museum and Gustavianum. Networks have been created with researchers in medical history from other faculties in Uppsala, Stockholm, and Linköping as well as with Baltic-Nordic Medical History Museums. Research projects are initiated and perfomed aiming mainly at the last 50-60 years of medical development.
