The Medical School Collection contains historical objects reflecting the development of particular specialties, including anatomy, ophthalmology and dentistry, and artefacts which reflect the development of the medical school and medical education more generally.  In addition, the collection contains numerous paintings and sculptures which reflect its history and the physicians who helped shape the development of the teaching and practice of medicine over the past 200 years. A recent donation of more than 700 artefacts which formerly comprised the Nursing History Group Museum complements the existing collection and provides a useful research tool for medical students studying in the Centre for the History of Medicine.
