History of Teaching Medicine at Emory Virtual Walkthrough, Case 5 – Anlage: The Voice of the Medical Student

Hello and welcome to a Virtual Walkthrough of the physical exhibit “History of Teaching Medicine at Emory University” located at the Woodruff Health Sciences Center Library. Due to Covid-19  we’re doing a virtual walk-through of our current exhibit. We’ll be looking at the exhibit case by case, finishing with Case 5 today.

Origins of Teaching Medicine at Emory, Anlage: The Voice of the Medical Student

Front View of the Case showing the Emory Medical Community Newspaper, Anlage.


From 1968 to 1992, The Anlage served as the voice of students at the Emory School of Medicine. Housed in the WHSC LibraryHistorical Collections, the newspapers depict major changes seen in the medical school through a student’s perspective. Entries include commentary detailing the struggle for social justice, student activism during the Vietnam War, construction and renovations across campus, the rise of tuition, and major changes to the curriculum.
