A History of Yale's School of Medicine

Yale University Press

This book concludes with an understanding of the Yale University School of Medicine's fortunes at the time of its tercentenary, which will allow the story to be put in context. It is generally recognized as one of the world's great medical schools, but what, in particular, makes it a preeminent medical institution? With some understanding of Yale's history, can the medical school's future be divined? Its future is closely associated with both the university and the hospital, but there are strong outside determinants, too. The direction of healthcare in the United States and the evolution of biomedical science will profoundly affect the future of the school. The arrival of Robert W. Berliner, deputy director of the NIH, heralded an increased commitment to basic science, which catapulted the medical school into the top ranks of research-intensive medical institutions.

Keywords:   Yale University School of Medicine, medical schools, medical institution, healthcare, biomedical science, United States, Robert W. Berliner
