Summary
The College of Physicians of Philadelphia is home to sections, specialized interest groups that hold regular meetings, lectures, and other events. The sections were first established in 1893 by President S. Weir Mitchell, in order to make time at general meetings for College business rather than discussions on medical topics. The first sections established were: Ophthalmology, Orthopedic Surgery, General Surgery, and Otology & Laryngology. These sections were quickly followed by those on Gynecology and General Medicine. This small collection of various sections includes the records of the Section on Gynecology (1897-1907), the Section on General Surgery (1894; 1896; 1898), the Section on Internal Medicine (1976-1977), the Section on Orthopaedic Surgery (1894-1895), and the Section on General Medicine (1965; undated). The amount of records related to these sections is small, and likely does not cover all the years each section was active
