Berlioz in Paris
Faculty of Medicine
Berlioz was a student here in 1821 and 1822, before leaving medicine for the study of music at the Paris Conservatoire. The main entrance of the Faculty, part of the Université René Descartes, is on the rue de l’École de Médecine, which links Boulevard Saint-Germain to Boulevard Saint-Michel, on the left bank of the Seine.
