Bulgarian military doctors in the end of th 19th and the beginning of the 20th century
In the end of the XIX and the beginning of the XX century Bulgarian citizens managed to invest funds in development of existent factories and manufactures, and construction of new ones, as well as in financial help for education of studious young Bulgarians. Bulgarian medical officers graduated in medical schools, defended doctoral theses and became professors in higher medical schools in Europe, Romania and Turkey. Some of the Bulgarian physicians graduated from the Military Medical School in Istanbul, served in the Turkish Armed Forces. When the Third Bulgarian Kingdom (1878) was created, Bulgarian physicians had already knowledge in military medical theory and practice. The investigations showed that some of the physicians, graduated from universities in Europe, embraced the military medical career working in: the Turkish Army; French Army; Romanian Army; Russian Army & so on.
An entire constellation of Bulgarian physicians played key role in the establishment of civil and military services in Bulgaria.
