19th-Century Medical Schools of St. Louis

Tour a timeline of 24 medical schools in 19th-century St. Louis at the Glaser Gallery on the seventh floor of the Bernard Becker Medical Library.

The Glaser Gallery at Becker Medical Library: 19th Century Medical School of St. Louis

St. Louis witnessed the creation of two-dozen medical schools in the 1800s, including the first west of the Mississippi River and the only two still in operation today. While this may have been the heyday of medical schools in the city, the education at these institutions was often irresponsibly poor and sometimes willfully fraudulent. Tour a timeline of these 24 schools at the Glaser Gallery on the seventh floor of the Bernard Becker Medical Library, now through Feb. 15, 2021.
