The Clendening History of Medicine Museum was founded as the object-focused portion of the Clendening History of Medicine Library. The Museum seeks to illustrate the history of medicine to the staff, students, & faculty of the University of Kansas Medical Center, as well as the wider community. Drawing from scholarship in the history of medicine and a collection spanning from ancient times to the 20th century, it provides historical context for the educators and innovators of KUMC who are shaping the future of Medicine.
