This extensively researched, highly interesting account of the practice of Medicine from 1670-Present records more than 300 years of medical care by Charleston doctors.
The handsome, hard cover, fully illustrated book is vividly enhanced by photographs, many of which are rarely seen, meticulously selected from Charleston and South Carolina archives. Biemann Othersen, Jr., Emeritus Head, Division of Pediatric Surgery, MUSC authors this timely piece as a fulfillment of the Executive Committee’s desire to make the many contributions of the Charleston County Medical Community more widely known.
The unique feature of our book will be the inclusion of histories, both long and short, memorials and tributes to Charleston Doctors who have served and who are serving their patients and community with boundless dedication and skill.
These stories are seldom shared or recorded and our book connects this with a thoughtfully conceived practice history section that adds a unique dimension to this important work.
