The Josephinum was founded in 1785 by Emperor Joseph II as a medico-surgical military academy to train prospective doctors and midwives for civil and military service according to novel teaching methods. Today, the Josephinum is the historical gateway to the Medical University of Vienna and remains an important place for teaching, research, art and the exchange of ideas.

With the new Josephinum Lecture series, we want to continue in the spirit of the Age of Enlightenment and present old facts and new viewpoints. The series is intended to encourage discussion on the interface between art and science, medicine and culture.
