Welcome to the Scotland & Medicine Partnership website

Scotland has been at the forefront of modern medicine since the 18th century and is still a world leader in research and development. We have an extraordinary medical heritage that spans the globe – breakthroughs in surgery, medicine, treatment of disease, public health and health service technologies have been pioneered in Scotland or elsewhere in the world by people trained in Scotland.

This website brings together information on, and links to, Scotland’s outstanding and remarkable museum, gallery, archive and library medical related collections in and around Scotland. From folklore traditions to the latest 3D scanning technologies, we hope you enjoy exploring this site and finding out a bit more about the publically accessible collections that help tell the story of Scotland’s fascinating medical heritage.
