      John Duffy's classic history, formerly titled The Healers, has
        been thoroughly revised and updated for this second edition, which includes
        new chapters on women and minorities in medicine and on the challenges
        currently facing the health care field.
      "This remains the only comprehensive history of American medicine.
        The treatment of the emergence of modern medicine and the flowering of
        surgery is especially fresh and well done. As one of the respected scholars
        in our profession, John Duffy has again demonstrated his wide knowledge
        of the subject."

        Search for Education in Medicine
