Abstract
The relationship between natural sciences and medicine has been a great deal closer throughout the history of medicine in Transylvania than it is nowadays. The physicians of the second half of the eighteenth century were accustomed to analyse the composition of mineral waters, to hike along the Carpathian Mountains, to collect botanical and mineral rarities and send them to the nearest gymnasium in order to be studied. The interdisciplinarity, the medical and natural sciences societies, the museums and the collections founded during the Enlightenment years played a great part in the history of medical education and helped shape professional medicine.
