Overview

Founded in 1810, the Yale School of Medicine was among the nation’s first medical schools. Over the past 200 years it has grown and evolved to become a world-class institution for research, education, and patient care, as well as a hub of medical innovation and discovery. By highlighting key events and participants and setting the development of the institution in the context of changes in American culture and advancements in science, this full-color, beautifully illustrated volume portrays the evolution of medicine in America through the lens of the eventful history of the school.

The volume also features essays by Thomas P. Duffy, Sherwin B. Nuland, and John Harley Warner, whose diverse areas of expertise—internal medicine, surgery, and the history of medicine—lend their writings variety and breadth.
