From the History of Medicine.

The clinical medicine and safeguard of public health greatly developed in Roman times. The name of Galen is widely known. Galen worked first as a surgeon at a school for gladiators. He went to Rome when he was thirty-two years old and there he had much practice, but he continued to experiment on living animals especially apes and pigs. The Roman army always had a well-organized service of surgeons. The school for gladiators was an ideal school for training in surgery.
