Imhotep

In ancient Egypt, or Kemet, Hippocrates (c. 460 – c. 370 B.C.), the Greek physician who the Western world considers the “father of medicine,” learned about diseases from the previous explorations of Imhotep (c. 2650 – 2600 B.C.), the Egyptian scholar who established diagnostic medicine about 2,500 years earlier. This early renaissance man — priest, astronomer and physician — was described as “the first figure of a physician to stand out clearly in the mists of antiquity” by the British medical trailblazer William Osler.
