Medical College of Ohio Collection
Description: Illustration showing the Medical College of Ohio, 1835. Daniel Drake founded the Medical College of Ohio in 1819 in Cincinnati. Prior to the Medical College's establishment, most doctors learned their vocation through an apprenticeship system. Drake hoped to bring some of the finest doctors in the United States to Cincinnati to provide students with multiple perspectives on the practice of medicine. He also hoped that a diverse faculty would encourage discussion of medical practices and improve patient care. In 1896, the Medical College of Ohio merged with the University of Cincinnati, and later changed its name to the College of Medicine of the University of Cincinnati. View on Ohio Memory.
