University of North Carolina Press

This book explores the medical practice of physicians in the southern United States from 1830 to 1880. In this period, an orthodox type of medical practice called “country orthodox style” emerged. Country orthodox refers to a style of practice adopted from local sources and abstract traditions. The book explores three contexts of medicine—physicians' training, the bedside, and their works. It presents a brief profile of mid-nineteenth century orthodox practitioners and their everyday practice through which they shaped the art of their healing.

Keywords:   medical practice, physicians, United States, country orthodox style, orthodox practitioners, healing
