This chapter focuses on medical education at the University of Marburg in Germany from 1608 to 1620, with emphasis on student attendance. It first provides an overview of student numbers during the first two centuries of Marburg before turning to the professors of the medical faculty. It then looks at the revival in the study of medicine in Marburg beginning in 1608–1609, along with Johannes Hartmann's concept of medicine known as ‘chym-iatria’, which combines hippocratic and hermetic medicine. It also considers the practice and theory in Hartmann's teaching, doctorates in medicine awarded at Marburg, and the university's medical students. The chapter concludes by assessing the impact of the academicisation and establishment of the second, iatro-chemical medicine and pharmacy, as well as their harmonisation with Hippocratic-Galenic humoural pathology, at Marburg.
