Art & Heritage Collections
This year the University is celebrating 125 years of the Medical School.
University Archives and Art & Heritage Collections have joined forces to help create an exhibition that traces the Medical School's development from inception in 1885 to today.
Searching though the collections, we were able to find relevant and interesting items illustrating the School's progression, highlighting key benefactors, Nobel laureates and intriguing medical equipment and teaching tools.
Most of the artefacts on display are well used and of their era. If you are afraid of needles you might like to have a look - you may be cured instantly!
Some items are beautifully crafted and are now curios, but in their time they were state-of-the-art technologies utilised to build the reputation of our Medical School, which has made an important impact in Australia and the world.
The exhibition is on display in the Barr Smith Library until 4 September.
