Overview

EMI was known as the "mecca of eclectic thinking" and the "Mother Institute" of reformed medicine. Alternative Medicine recounts the history of eclectic medicine which, along with hydropathy, homeopathy, physio-medicalism, chiropractic, and osteopathy, competed with allopathy, or regular medicine, in the nineteenth century. Unlike most alternative medical colleges that closed without leaving documentation, EMI left complete student records, faculty files, deans papers, financial records, and minutes of the board of trustees. These records provide an important window into sectarian medicine's many challenges, into the tensions between the school and its board of trustees, and between the school and the American Medical Association as EMI unsuccessfully struggled with the AMA's Council on Medical Education to obtain a class-A rating.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Douglas M. Haynes, PhD (University of California Irvine)
Description: This book is a retelling of the history of the Eclectic Medical College of Cincinnati, Ohio.
Purpose: The rise in the mid-nineteenth century and decline by the Second World War of this College is a documentation of the history of medical sectarianism in the U.S. The author not only reveals a heterogeneous and turbulent landscape of medicine and healthcare, he also shows that the ascendancy of regular or allopathic medicine produced distinctly unfavorable consequences for alternative medicine.
Audience: Practitioners and other students of medicine interested the history of alternative and/or regular medicine should find this account a fascinating, if not bittersweet, read.
Features: Drawing on the archives of the now defunct school, the author carefully reconstructs how academic leaders and students vainly sought to preserve an eclectic system of medicine when the leading professional organizations such as the American Medical Association and the American Association of Medical Colleges relentlessly sought to standardize medical education.
Assessment: This book fills an important gap in the history of American medicine. Rather than ridiculing medical sectarianism or privileging regular medicine, the author offers a thoughtful chapter in the making of American medicine.
