Continuing the Legacy
In 1994, when MCP and Hahnemann merged into MCPHU, the Alumnae/i Associations worked together in preserving each school’s identity. Naomi Rogers, PhD., and Steven J. Peitzman, M.D., were commissioned by the Association to write individual histories of Hahnemann and W/MCP. The unveiling of Rogers’ An Alternative Path and Peitzman’s A New and Untried Course coincided with the schools’ sesquicentennial celebration in 1998 and 2000, respectively.
Naomi Rogers, An Alternative Path: the making and remaking of Hahnemann Medical College and Hospital of Philadelphia, 1998
Steven Peitzman, A New and Untried Course: Woman’s Medical College and Medical College of Pennsylvania 1850-1998, 2000
The Alumni Association continues to celebrate its heritage through the Alumni Association History Information Project (AAHIP), a board initiative carried out in partnership with the Legacy Center Archive & Special Collections of the Drexel University College of Medicine. The AAHIP preserves and documents the history and reach of the Alumni Associations of the DUCOM legacy medical schools.
The Legacy Center is the repository for the records and heritage of Drexel University College of Medicine and its predecessor institutions, including Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania and Hahnemann University.
