Hirsch, J. Creating the Science of Medicine
Jules Hirsch. The Rockefeller University Hospital, 1910- 2010: creating the science of medicine: a centennial essay
The year 2010 marks the Centennial of The Rockefeller University Hospital, one of the great philanthropic achievements of the 20th century. For ten decades, the Hospital has played a central role in the development and growth of medical science by enabling physician-scientists to make an intensive study of human biology and disease. With ingenuity and devotion, they have greatly enriched medical and basic biological science.
This account emphasizes the founding and first half century of the Hospital as it became a germinal center for clinical science. The second half of the century saw a rapid change in medicine and health care with vexing problems, many are yet unsolved.
