Many of the specimens at the Maude Abbott Medical Museum were collected in the 1870’s by William Osler, a pathologist at the Montreal General Hospital. He used these specimens to teach medical school students about human organs and the diseases that affected them. The specimens were also used to document the study and practice of medicine at McGill and its associated teaching hospitals.
The Maude Abbott Medical Museum is open two days a week, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons from 1:00-4:00 pm and by appointment.
