Medicine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (4915 words)
Medicine is a branch of health science concerned with maintaining human health and restoring it by treating disease and injury; it is both an area of knowledge, a science of body systems and diseases and their treatment, and the applied practice of that knowledge.
Medicine as understood in the modern period has historically been considered to be the mainstream tradition which developed in the Western world since the early modern age.
Medicine as it is practiced now is rooted in various traditions, but developed mainly in the late 18th and early 19th century in Germany (Rudolf Virchow) and France (Jean-Martin Charcot, Claude Bernard and others).
