Support and Donate

Since 1967 the collection has grown, due to the generosity of benefactors associated with the Melbourne Medical School and Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences. Together with alumni, their families and others, your support is crucial to building this valuable historical and cultural resource.
