Historical medical films on YouTube

February 25, 2009 § 3 Comments

The Wellcome Library, which catalogues books, manuscripts, archives, films and pictures on the history of medicine, has started to make their historical medical films available on YouTube.

Over 100 hours of historical films and video is going to be digitized. As of now, 25 videos have been published, the subject matter ranging from public health information on obesity in children to descriptions of surgical procedures, like the removal of a tuberculoma of the brain, shown above.

A great source of both medical history and the history of visual communication in medicine!

Thanks to Thomas for the tip.
