The founding of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine fundamentally changed medicine in America. In the blink of an eye, medicine was transformed from a trade practiced by poorly educated craftsmen to a science practiced by highly educated physicians. While this transformation may seem perfectly obvious in retrospect, the challenges were significant. This course will tell the story of the founding of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and will be told through the lives of ten extraordinary individuals—John Shaw Billings, Max Brödel, Mary Elizabeth Garrett, William Halsted, Jesse Lazear, Dorothy Reed Mendenhall, William Osler, Helen Taussig, Vivien Thomas, and William Welch. Each faced enormous challenges and each had unimaginable impact. There are many lessons to learn from the way they each lived their lives.
