Faculty of Medicine Coat of Arms

The coat of arms of the faculty of medicine (below) first appeared on a faculty calendar in 1884. Although the details of its origin, including the identity of the artist who devised it, are not known, the principal elements of the coat of arms used by the university from 1866 were incorporated into the design. The present coat of arms of the university dates from 1906 when the 1866 version was modified in order to incorporate those heraldic emblems of a learned institution that had been inadvertently omitted from the earlier design. The faculty of medicine, however, continues to use its more ancient if less learned symbol.
