Dittrick Medical History Center, Image Collection

This collection contains several thousand images in all media and is often used to provide illustrations for lectures, books and exhibits. Photographs available include those of local medical schools and hospitals, their faculties and staff, diagnostic and surgical instrumentation (especially instruments in the collection of the Dittrick Museum of Medical History), and portraits of important individuals in the history of medicine. Many of these items are made available digitally to users on our database. Due to the wide variety of our collections, it is possible that some online collections items are of unknown original origins. All users are responsible for complying with all privacy and publicity rights, rules, and applicable laws when accessing and utilizing the collections.



Access to museum collections is by appointment only.
