David McBride traces the structural development and social and political experiences of one urban community of black medical providers during a period of unprecedented change in health care, race relations, and politics. Integrating the City of Medicine reveals the origins and influence of black medical professionals and allied health workers in Philadelphia—a leading center of the nation’s medical heritage, hospital resources, and medical education.

McBride characterizes the experience of Philadelphia blacks in the medical profession as a transition from a period of wide-scale isolation during the early twentieth health efforts through the Depression, the book examines the technological and political forces that at first sustained the self-enclosed black medical community but later dispersed it into Philadelphia’s mainstream health care system.
