Objects are important sources for medical historians. The online exhibition ‘The history of medicine in seven objects’ was made by RMA students and PhD candidates who participated in the masterclass “Medical museums: material sources in medical history” in the spring of 2022 (organised by the HI Research Network History Health & Healing). The expo can be visited here.
