(B. 29th July 1811, Pest – D. 21st August, 1883, Pest)

Dean: 1863/64

Originally choosing to lead a monastic life, Tamás Stockinger joined the Piarist order and was a novice in Trencsén for two years. He taught in Tata, and from 1830 to 1832 he studied philology in Vác prior to his university years. He eventually decided to become a doctor. He received his medical degree in Pest in 1838, and was awarded the title of surgeon a year later. He worked as an assistant to Ignác Stáhly at the Department of Surgery, and became a privatdocent of the history of medicine in 1844/45. He replaced the director of the Department of Theoretical Surgery from 1847 to 1849. When the department was reorganized as the Department of Pre-hospital Surgery in 1851, he was appointed professor ordinarius, working as such until his retirement in 1879. His studies were published in Hungarian and German scientific journals. He was dean in 1863/4 and rector in 1870/71 (academic years). He was given the title of royal counsellor in 1871.
