Visualising Medical Heritage

For the past two years, we have been developing a series of interactive digital products to communicate the medical heritage of the College, Glasgow, and Scotland. These visualisation products tell the stories of groundbreaking work carried out by Fellows and Members throughout history, and how their work changed the practice of medicine and surgery for the better.
