I am finishing up residency after 5 years, and finally took the time to visit the Hennepin Medical History Museum. It is truly a fascinating place where you can see the evolution of medicine literally before your own eyes. I was particularly intrigued by the iron lung which was the mainstay of polio treatment, and the role Australian-borne nurse Sister Kenny played, when she eventually settled in Minneapolis.
