    It's such a big topic. Galen, public health during the Roman era and middle ages, Vesalius, Harvey, Pare, hospital care, the black death, Cholera (Chadwick and Snow), Edward Jenner, Pasteur's germ theory, Robert Koch, magic bullets, penicillin, discovery of DNA and the NHS. May have missed a few things like technology (printing press, x-rays, etc) but that's most of what I remember. Good luck
