Museum of Medicine’ s History

Indicative research projects: 

The ALCMAEON project aims to innovate the teaching of medical history with a new educational approach, the object-based learning, and to work in a better integration of historical, ethical and psychosocial components of medical humanities.

It represents an alternative model of medical history provision and an attempt to overcome the gap between clinical practice and historical perspective of medical humanities, through the representation of the historical scenarios and the integration of historical evidences in specific educational contents.

The ALCMAEON project will collect audio-visual material to digitalize the available collections of medical museum in Italy, Spain, Greece, United Kingdom and Romania, in the attempt to promote the different traditions characterizing European medical history and bring the medical museums in the classroom.
