Obituaries, profiles and sound recordings of individuals and alumni.


William Osler BM 1903OMA is closely involved in recording and enhancing the understanding of the history of medicine at Oxford. 

Saving Oxford Medicine

OMA works closely with the Bodleian Library's Saving Oxford Medicine programme. This programme records key sources for the recent history of medicine in Oxford and aims to survey the archives of current and retired members of Oxford University's Medical Sciences Division, one of the foremost centres for medical research and teaching in the world. As well as acquiring new materials the programme aims to catalogue medical archives already held in the Bodleian Library's Special Collections.

Recollecting Oxford Medicine

Brain surgery 1942The Recollecting Oxford Medicine project is an oral history archive which has been developed to ensure that the recollections of those who have studied, taught or worked in medicine at oxford are kept. The completed recordings are transcribed into printed form and then both the oral recording and the printed copy are lodged at the Bodleian. The recordings and transcripts can be edited and/or embargoed if required.

If you wish to suggest someone to be included in this oral archive or to become involved in this project then please contact OMA

Photographic archive

Lavery and HoltOMA is developing an image archive which includes: students, teachers, Tingewick, rugby, rowing, teaching, events and reunions. If you have photographs relating to Oxford medical alumni, or to the study of medicine at Oxford, which you would like to share with other alumni please send them to us. (We will scan and return hard copy images if that is helpful.) 

In due course you will be able to browse these pictures through our secure login, which is available to registered alumni and members of the Oxford medical community.
