History of Medicine

Manchester has played a pivotal role in the development of medicine since the mid-eighteenth century. Long-standing, close ties between the University of Manchester, the influential Manchester Medical Society, Manchester Royal Infirmary and other major teaching hospitals, have encouraged the University of Manchester Library to develop an outstanding collection of manuscript and printed resources for studies in the history of medicine.

This digital collection will be added to as part of the Library’s continuing digitisation programme.
