Centenary of the Army Medical Corps
In the military hospitals in Italy, the centenary of the existence of the army medical corps was celebrated with fitting ceremonies. In 1831, military hospitals were established in the Sardinian army, and in 1832 the superior council of health was created. The regulations concerning the personnel and the work of the service were not announced until June, 1833. The personnel, in addition to the superior council, consisted of 107 physicians, nine pharmacists and 100 students of medicine. In 1853 was founded the Istituto farmaceutico militare, which is still functioning. The army medical corps has at present the Scuola di applicazione di sanità militare in Florence, departments for the diagnosis of tuberculosis, a military sanatorium (at Anzio), divisional hospitals and garrison infirmaries. Part of the medical officers are required, in turn, to attend for two years the various university clinics.
