The history of medicine in Central New York has national and international as well as local and regional importance. Elizabeth Blackwell, the world's first woman physician to earn her M.D. by completing the regular course of study at an accredited medical school, received that degree in Central New York. Alumni and faculty of Upstate Medical University and its predecessor institutions have achieved greatness that has enriched medicine and society around the world since 1834. This book tells their stories.
Copiously illustrated with photos, drawings, and documents from the Upstate Archives and other sources in Upstateâ€™s Special Collections Vault. Written by Upstate Medical University's Curator of Historical Collections Emeritus, loaded with facts, fully indexed, and handsomely designed, it will be an accurate, valuable, and easy to use reference tool for the history of Geneva Medical College, Syracuse University College of Medicine, and Upstate Medical University for years to come.
Eric v.d. Luft, Ph.D., M.L.S., is Curator of Historical Collections Emeritus at SUNY Upstate Medical University.
Most institutional histories of medical schools tell the narrow story of the creation and growth of that specific school and fail to put this story into the broader context of American medical educational change. Fortunately Eric Luft avoids this typical shortcoming and places the history of his medical school, SUNY Upstate Medical University, within the broader context of American medical history, from the schoolâ€™s early nineteenth-century beginnings in Geneva, New York, into the first decade of the twenty-first century in Syracuse.
