Don’t Forget: To Spread the Light of Knowledge

BirthdayBook_croppedCelebrate the 250th birthday of the nation’s first medical school – the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania – with a limited-edition book filled with nearly 200 pages of history. Illustrated with many archival documents, paintings and photographs never previously compiled, the book traces the bright path of Penn’s role as a pioneer in medical education, biomedical research and clinical care. To Spread the Light of Knowledge chronicles the fascinating history of the Perelman School of Medicine, from its beginning as a few lectures given in borrowed space to the extensive curriculum, research, and multidisciplinary clinical practice within Penn Medicine today.
