Carl Ernst Bock (1809 – 1874) was a German physician and anatomist.
Born in Leipzig to anatomist Carl August Bock, he studied at the University of Leipzig, where he earned his doctorate in 1831. During the November Uprising in Poland, he served as a hospital physician for both the Polish and Russian armies. On returning to Leipzig in 1832 he became a private lecturer, and in 1837 was appointed to preside over autopsies at Leipzig’s hospital. In 1839 he was appointed extraordinary professor of pathological anatomy, and in 1850 became head of the university’s clinical department.
In addition to his writings on anatomical and surgical matters, in his later years Bock wrote numerous essays and books on public health. These were written in clear and strident language and addressed to a popular audience. (Wikipedia)
