Every Trinket Tells a Story: Penn Medicine Office Space

IMG_8048For some, an office is just another place to be during the day. For others, it's an expression of who they are, where they've been, or where they want to go. Penn Medicine Office Space highlights some of the latter, looking at various interesting offices from around the health system. From medical oddities to antiques to art both old and new, one thing is clear: Some of the most interesting things to see here at Penn Medicine aren't necessarily found in the clinical setting.

Francis J. DeRoos is an Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and Residency Program Director for the Department of Emergency Medicine in the Perelman School of Medicine.

His clinical expertise is toxicology, and his office shows it.

"Most people are fascinated with the wide variety of containers and bottles, and often select one or two to ask a question about," he said. "It's a great icebreaker."

DeRoos took some time to show us around his collection, as well as the numerous photos — all his own — from places around the world he has been able to visit.
