History of Anatomy & Human Dissection

May 16, 2017

Jan Kletter, MD, WVU Assistant Professor of Surgery, will lecture on the History of Anatomy & Human Dissection as part of the Pylon Medical History Lecture Series. Sculpted by the late Milton Horn, the pylons of WVU Health Sciences Center are an iconic representation of art, history, and education in the form of seven foot marble pillars. The originals are housed at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown and a replica set are displayed at WVU Charleston Division. A third set will be unveiled in Martinsburg on August 16. The monthly lecture series will discuss each scene of the pylon and its relationship to the history of medicine.

Funded project of the West Virginia Humanities Council. The West Virginia Humanities Council is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
