“The Teaching Hospital: Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Evolution of Academic Medicine”
By Peter Tishler, MD, BWH Division of Genetics; Joseph Loscalzo, MD, PhD; chair, BWH Department of Medicine; and Christine Wenc, BWH Department of Medicine
“The Teaching Hospital: Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Evolution of Academic Medicine,” published earlier this year, is a far-reaching history of BWH, from its commitment to compassionate patient care and encouragement of leading-edge research to its emphasis on quality education and extensive community outreach.
The book features biographies of past and present BWH leaders and legends, accounts of medical breakthroughs, department achievements, and hospital milestones and “firsts.” The nearly 400-page book also includes a detailed history of BWH’s predecessor hospitals and their merging together, as well as photos from the BWH archives.
“The Teaching Hospital” is available online at amazon.com and at the Shop on the Pike. Read more about the book in BWH Bulletin.
