Among the Polish philosophers and historians of medicine of the turn of the 19th century Wladyslaw Bieganski was justly said to be the most eminent Polish logician of medicine, whose name is mentioned next to Franciszek Oesterlen - an originator of the modern logic of medicine. However, Bieganski was not the only person, who among Polish scientists paid so much attention to the discussed domain. After Bieganski one should mention with conviction the author of 'Logika dla medyków' (Logic for Medicals) - Wladyslaw Szumowski. The present text is an attempt at presenting Szumowski's ideas of the role and status of logic in medicine, and its importance for educating future doctors.
