A web version is now available of the Crerar Library exhibit: Past, Present, Future: The Evolution of Medicine at the University of Chicago’s Hospitals. This is a online archive of an exhibit that was shown in the Crerar atrium glass cases in 2011-2012.
Exhibit Description: A hospital and medical school at the University of Chicago were envisioned by the university founders. That plan, initiated with a joint medical program with Rush Medical College, was followed by the development of the world-class University of Chicago Medical Center on campus. This exhibit provides an overview of the history and evolution of the medical school program, the hospital facilities and their technology, and medical partnerships with other Chicago area hospitals.
