Abstract: 

The second half of the 19th century was a period of revolutionary change in the biomedical sciences. The development of the germ theory of disease and the establishment of fields such as bacteriology, pharmacology, and physiological chemistry laid the groundwork for significant advances in medicine and pharmacy. The extraordinary growth of the biomedical sciences also made its impact felt on medical and pharmaceutical education.
