Medical students may not be the only ones interested in the state of medical science during the 1800s when many families were migrating to Australia. Entitled 'Rough Medicine', the exhibition reveals the brutal treatments that European immigrants to Australia had to endure during their voyages. Minor illnesses were often treated with lances, leeches or a dose of salts while major surgery were carried out without anesthetics. Visitors will see a collection of bone syringes, surgical kits, tinctures, poders, jars of leeches, surgeon journals and passengers letter and diaries.
