Who Discovered The Circulation Of Blood?

The physician who made the discovery of how blood circulates around the human body was William Harvey.

He published his findings in his work Exercitatio Anatomica De Motu Cordis Et Sanguinis, which translates to On the Movement of the Heart and Blood. It was published in 1628.

Though he identified that the heart worked as a pump which propelled blood through arteries before returning to the heart through veins, it took years before his findings were accepted throughout the medical profession. The capillary system was later discovered by Marcello Malpighi.
