CHAPTER IX.

SEPARATE MEDICAL COLLEGES, ETC. Besides the Medical Schools already noticed in connection with Literary Colleges, there are a considerable number that have an independent organization; others that have ceased to exist after having had a more or less successful career, and others that obtained charters but accomplished nothing under them. We will present all of these under one alphabetical order, in the following pages, after giving some general statistics concerning them. A few Dental, Pharmaceutical and Veterinary Colleges are included. The statistical returns from these Colleges have been made but imperfectly, and no attempt was made to generalize them until about thirty years ago.

AMERICAN COLLEGE OF MEDICAL SCIENCE. Incorporated by act of April 2, 1858,' and located in the city of New York. The powers conferred were similar to those granted to Medical Colleges, but it was not required to report to the Regents. It is not known by the Editor as to whether it was ever organized.

AMERICAN VETERINARY COLLEGE. This institution was formed under a general act in April, 1875, and is located at 141 West Forty-fourth street, New York city. Its reports to the Regents begin for the year ending in 1878, and the number attending and graduating has been as follows:

Students — 1878, 22; 1879, 42; 1880, 53; 1881, 52; 1852, 51; 1883, 61.

Graduates — 1878, 6; 1879, 8; 1880, 18; 1881, 18; 1882, 20; 1883, 22. Total, 92.

AUBURN MEDICAL COLLEGE. Application was made in 1820 for the establishment of a Medical College at Auburn. In a report made by Mr. Van Rensselaer, February 21, 1820, from a committee of the Board of Regents to which the matter had been referred, objection is made upon the ground that it was inexpedient to increase the number of incorporated Medical and Surgical institutions within the State, and that there was no probability that a sufficient fund could be raised for its support, without Legislative aid. The committee, however, added that they

were satisfied " that the proposed site for a Medical College would be inore eligible than Fairfield, and that if the College at Fairfield could lawfully be transferred to Auburn, it would silence every reasonable pretence for the incorporation of another Medical College.”

BELLEVUE HOSPITAL MEDICAL COLLEGE. Bellevue Hospital was formerly the Alms House Hospital, and included most of the charity patients of the city. Before 1847, the medical affairs of the hospital appear to have been confided mainly to a resident physician; but on the 19th of November of that year, a Medical Board was organized, in which the staff was divided into physicians and surgeons, who held permanent instead of temporary appointments, and visited the wards in alternation. This change seems to have led directly to a plan for using the ample resources of the hospital for instruction. At the end of February, 1849, fifteen months after the Board was formed, an amphitheatre had been constructed. Clinical lectures were begun, and have been since continued.

A building erected through the zeal and energy of Dr. James R. Wood, for the prosecution of pathological studies, was inaugurated October 25, 1857, and instruction was continued three or four years in the winter months, but without its being as yet regarded as a distinct Medical College. The care of the hospital, having by an act of April 17, 1860, passed from the “ Board of Governors ” of the former “ Alms House Department,” to the “ Department of Public Charities and Correction,” a suggestion appears on the minutes of the Medical Board, under date of December 18, 1860, as the report of a committee consisting of Drs. Isaac E. Taylor and James R. Wood, proposing a separate Medical College, independent of a mere hospital for clinical teaching, “and thus making it one of the largest hospitals, and it may be, schools in the United States — nay Europe." The project matured rapidly; on the 1st of March, 1861, a committee was appointed to procure plans for a College building, and on the 30th, the commissioners informed the Medical Board that it might be erected upon the hospital grounds.

A few days after a medical faculty was organized, and the first exercises were short courses of lectures delivered in April and May of that year, by Professors J. R. Wood and Frank H. Hamilton, upon points connected with Military Surgery - a subject made im.
