Description

The first North American hospitals were built in Virginia in 1611. Virginia continued to set hospital and health education trends with the establishment of the Department of Medicine in Richmond, later known as the School of Medicine, in 1837. Through data largely compiled by former secretary-treasurer of the College, J.R. McCauley, this book covers the early history of the Medical College of Virginia (MCV) and the history of health services education in Virginia from 1893 to 1913. Major events covered in this book include the effects of World War I on the College and the unsuccessful proposals to consolidate MCV with the University of Virginia and the University of Richmond.
