Vestiges of Canadian Medical History Exhibit

No comments :
Though still a young country, Canada has been the backdrop for many major medical milestones including the discovery of insulin, the birth of universal health care and the development of a viable procedure for pancreatic islet cell transplantation. Beyond these frequently cited narratives is a rich medical history as distinctive and unique as the people and landscapes of this great nation.  

From June 15 until July 22, 2016 the John W. Scott Health Sciences Library is proud to present Vestiges of Canadian Medical History. This exhibit features a number of unique volumes from the Rawlinson Rare Book Collection, relating to the history of medicine in Canada, with a particular emphasis on medicine in Western Canada, as well as medical artifacts from the late 19th and early 20th century (courtesy of the University’s Office of Undergraduate Medical Education). This exhibit is presented in conjunction with the Three Societies Meeting.

The John W. Scott Health Sciences Library is located on the second floor of the the Walter C. MacKenzie Centre (enter the University of Alberta Hospital via the 114 Street entrance across from the Health Sciences/ Jubilee LRT Station, or using the the 112 Street entrance; ask for directions at the Information Desk).
