Summary: Not Just Any Medical Schooldetails the establishment of the University of Michigan Medical School. It provides a picture of its students, curriculum, amphitheaters, laboratories, hospitals, and patients as seen through the eyes of its leading faculty members and documented by their published works, lecture notes, and other primary and secondary sources. The book begins with the selection of the first five professors and continues through the appointment of statesman and scientist V moreictor Vaughan as dean and his successors to 1941. Organized by specialty, the material is chronological within chapters. Illustrations include student and faculty scenes, hospital interiors and exteriors, and medical apparatus. The narrative includes numerous direct quotes from research papers, lectures, and letters illustrating that Michigan was ''not just any medical school.'' Many of the significant medical and scientific advances that originated at Michigan are described in detail. Appearing in conjunction with the sesquicentennial of the Medical School,Not Just Any Medical Schoolwill appeal to those interested in the history of medicine and particularly to those with a connection to the University of Michigan. Horace Davenport is William Beaumont Professor Emeritus of Physiology, University of Michigan. less
