From Plague Hospitals to Modern Clinics

This tour is a supplement of Part I and covers the period of medical history from Emperor Joseph II onwards. He was the founder of the Old General Hospital in the 9th district, traditional location of “hospitals” in the old sense, cemetaries and clinics. Hear about famous doctors of the Vienna Medical School such as Brambilla, Billroth and Semmelweis and the problems of being a patient in days gone by. We also will introduce you to the treatment of psychological diseases up to Freud’s psychoanalysis. We will, however, not leave out a development which resulted in dreadful pratices: the criminal misure of medical science and its gradual yet slow verification. Meanwhile Austria has brought forth a number of doctors of international reputation.
