Becoming a Physician: Medical Education in Britain, France, Germany, and the United States, 1750-1945

by Thomas Neville Bonner (Author)

Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal
The author, a distinguished scholar and university administrator, complements
his earlier To the Ends of the Earth: Women's Search for Education in Medicine
(Harvard Univ. Pr., 1992) with a broader look at medical education. Bonner
traces how such education evolved in four Western countries since the
Enlightenment as their respective medical establishments gradually incorporated
advances in natural sciences and developed a balance among theoretical,
clinical, and laboratory approaches to instruction. Not merely an institutional
study, Bonner's monograph describes the changing but always exhausting
experiences of medical students and the glacial advances of women and minorities
as they sought access to medical training. A scholarly and comprehensive
analysis, Bonner's book is highly recommended for academic and medical libraries.
