In the mid-nineteenth century, thousands of southern men pursued orthodox medicine as their career. This chapter examines the factors that influenced southern men as they made their decision to become doctors, stressing issues of gender and family. It also describes the competition among medical schools in recruiting students and apprentices. The chapter also discusses schools' struggles in reforming their curriculum and defining themselves as distinct intellectual realms.
