Learn Michigan Medicine’s history at upcoming seminar

February 14, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Michigan Medicine has a long, proud history — from the founding of the medical school in 1850 and the opening of the first university-owned hospital in 1869, to today's achievements in patient care, research and education.

A medical historian from Michigan Medicine's faculty, Joel Howell, M.D., knows this history well — he recently published a book with co-author Dea H. Boster called "Medicine at Michigan: A History of the University of Michigan Medical School at the Bicentennial."

On Thursday, Feb. 15 at 4 p.m., Howell will discuss this history and the lessons it holds for health care and health policy in the 21st century. The seminar will be held at the North Campus Research Complex.

Presented by the U-M Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation as part of its monthly seminar series, the one-hour talk is open to all. It will be held in the Research Auditorium in Building 10, which can be accessed by entering the NCRC visitor entrance in Building 18. CME is available by clicking here and using the following program ID: IHPI Research Seminar Series – 05182.

Live Twitter coverage via @UM_IHPI using the hashtag #ihpi18 will also be available, and a recording will be made available on the IHPI YouTube playlist at a later date.
