Campion, Thomas meaning in Medical Dictionary

(1567-1620) English physician, poet, and composer. Campion first learned law, but had small sympathy with, or value for, legal studies. Then invested three years (1602-1605) from the Continent and received the M.D. level from University of Caen in 1605. After returning to England, Campion practiced as a health care provider in London from 1606 until his death in 1620, most likely from the plague. Campion's literary output included poetry, songs, and treatises on poetry.
