The Dittrick Medical History Center welcomes the public, as well as the university community. A museum, archive, and collection of rare books, artifacts, and images, the Dittrick embraces the experience of individuals and society as they grappled with changing conceptions of health and medicine. Every artifact opens a door to unique stories, about patients, healers, and community.
