From Lancents to Laboratories: Medical Schools, Physicians, and Healthcare in the United States from 1870 to 1940

by Treber, Jaret Scott.

Abstract (Summary)
Healthcare in the United States experienced a remarkable transformation during the late 19th and early 20 th centuries. While this transformation is well documented in descriptive historical accounts there are few empirical studies investigating the mechanisms through which reform was disseminated or the affects of the reform on healthcare. To this end, this dissertation examines four issues related to changes in the American healthcare industry during the early 1900’s.
