How We Care, Volume 2: Medical Specialties and Nursing

9780974519425: How We Care, Volume 2: Medical Specialties and Nursing

How We Care, volume 2, is the history of medicine at Baylor University Medical Center and within Baylor Health Care System. The book’s 30 chapters cover various medical specialties—-from internal medicine and surgery to physical medicine and pathology—-as well as nursing and special topics such as group practice, women physicians, and ethics.

This well-documented, illustrated book will be of interest not only to those associated with Baylor but also to medical historians. The book complements volume 1 of the centennial history, which reviews the development of the medical center and health care system in the context of developments of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex and the region’s medical community.
