Museum of Mogilev Medical College boasts of unique historical documents

Museum of Mogilev Medical College boasts of unique historical documents showing the beginning of obstetric service in Pridneprovie region.

In 2015 the obstetric branch celebrates its 150th birthday. The real treasures of the museum are the originals of college diplomas that are more than 100 years old. The curriculum at obstetric school included religious instruction, and students wore black clothes rather than white coats.

In the pre-revolutionary period future obstetricians studied Latin, surgery, childhood diseases, pharmacology, and anatomy. And in general the curriculum didn't differ much from that of today's, deputy college director Marina Krutovtsova told.

Mogilev Medical College has a rich collection of exhibits dealing with obstetric service. They could become the foundation of scientific study on obstetric school in Mogilev. There are original documents and even 100-year old photos of the first obstetricians.
