Abstract:

Koch traveled to Berlin to see the sights of the big city and to attend the lectures of Rudolf Virchow, after completing his medical studies. Virchow, the most famous German physician of his day, was to become Koch's sometime opponent 20 years later. The knowledge of the clinical picture of cholera which Koch gained in Hamburg would be of great use to him in his studies in Egypt and India 17 years later. However, the position in Hamburg did not provide a suitable income for a prospective husband, so Koch began to apply for other positions. He quickly became a popular doctor with the villagers and his medical practice flourished. As in Hamburg, he carried out microscopical studies in Langenhagen too, not only in medicine but in the whole field of natural history. According to his letters to his father, he learned more during his brief military service than he would have learned in a half year in a surgical clinic. However, his hometown of Rakwitz needed its popular doctor back, and in early 1871 he was called to return even before the war ended. At Rakwitz, Koch was received with acclamation. Despite the predominance of Polish, Koch for the first time felt that he had established a "home". But at age 28, Koch was on an important new threshold.
