For a long time, the Dittrick Museum could be said to be a doctor's museum.  Doctors created it, staffed it, collected for it, and saw it as a vehicle to document and venerate the medical profession.  We still do that, but have broadened our mission to encompass a more universal perspective on health and medicine.  Our most recent initiatives present the history of contraception and birth, also a new exhibit on the history of diagnostics.
