969 views

During the era of Sultan Mahmud II (1785-1839) the Imperial Medical School of Constantinople was founded to equally educate all citizens of the Ottoman Empire. Ioannis Kallias (first quarter of the 19th century-late 19th century) a charismatic physician of Hellenic origin, was among the first professors in the field of Anatomy. He was educated in Pisa and became a member of various Hellenic institutes. Although he was mentioned as a famous physician, anatomist, and surgeon of his era, only fragments of his life are known. This historical vignette endeavors to remove the veil of his oblivion.
Keywords: Istanbul, 19th century, anatomy.
