In this extensively researched history of medical schools, William Rothstein traces their history from a source of medical lectures to their current status as centres of undergraduate and postgraduate medical education, biomedical research, and specialized medical care.
A refreshing and salutary study. * Social History of Medicine * This book presents an intensely quantitative and highly informative history and analysis of American medical schools. It is a valuable contribution to our understanding of how American physicians are trained and how this system came to be. * Journal of the American Medical Association * Rothstein draws upon an immense body of historical and sociological literature to produce a highly readable and provocative work that has much to offer both novices and experts in the history of American medical education. * Choice * ...the exhaustive research on medical history makes this a valuable purchase. * Library Journal * A study of scrupulous scholarship * British Medical Journal * This work... deserves the attention of all who have an interest in medical education and its history. It relies on the accurate use of statistics, provides careful analysis, and incorporates a goldmine of information on Americal medical care and education. Rothstein has produced a remarkable book that will provide historians of medicine, medical educators, health service administrators, and others interested in health care with information not available in any other treatise. I have no hesitation in recommending it unreservedly. * British Medical Journal *
