The altar is a work by Sansovino (1533-1546) and flanked by two paintings by Domenico Tintoretto, which are original and added after his father's commission. The coffered ceiling is by the master woodcarver Vettore Scienzia da Feltre and is the style usually found in the Scuole. It was damaged by a bomb August 14, 1917, and subsequently repaired.The exhibit cases display objects from the medical library collections.
