Modern Medicine

  • "Denotes a body of medicine that although it has roots in antiquity, is most precisely definable by its scientific stringency, which is of comparatively recent origin. It is a term commonly used in contexts where an ancient medicine (e.g. Chinese medicine or Indian medicine) is also discussed"(1)
