Johann Friedrich Fuchs (Mediziner)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Johann Friedrich Fuchs (* September 4, 1774 in Weißbach; † August 8, 1828 in Jena) was a German physician and university teacher.

Life

Fuchs had laid his educational foundations at the school in Themar and attended the Gymnasium Schleusingen in 1790. On April 30, 1796, he matriculated at the University of Jena to pursue philosophical and medical studies. Here he became a member of the Latin Society in Jena, was especially encouraged by Justus Christian Loder, and earned the degree of doctor of medicine on August 27, 1801. After Loder’s departure from Jena, Fuchs took over medical lectures at the Jena college in 1803. On June 21, 1803, he was appointed associate professor of anatomy at the University of Würzburg, where he taught anatomy and pathological anatomy. In the fall of 1805, he returned to Jena, where he assumed the third full professorship of anatomy and the chair of anthropology and veterinary medicine at the University of Jena, and received the title of Hofrat von Sachsen Weimar

In 1811 he rose to the second professorship of medicine and later to the first professorship of medicine. As he was in poor health and suffered from nervous weakness, he was retired in 1836. Fuchs also participated in the organizational tasks of the Jena Salana. Thus he was several times dean of the medical faculty and in the winter semesters 1809, 1811, 1813, 1815, 1819, 1821 rector of the alma mater. Fuchs wrote articles in the general medicinischen Annalen, in the general Anzeiger of the Germans, and on veterinary medicine. He became a foundation member of the Gesellschaft für die gesamte Mineralogie in Jena and its secretary. His extensive library was sold to the highest bidder on October 29, 1829, for which an auction catalogue was prepared.
