What does the word school mean?

  • A place of education. In Europe the large Medical Schools are usually attached to the universities. In England, however, there has been no medical school of celebrity at either of the universities of Oxford or Cambridge; owing greatly to their provincial situation. Of late, two schools have existed in London, attached to the London University University College and King’s College. Excellent private schools have, however, long existed in that metropolis. The medical schools of Europe which have been most celebrated, are those of Edinburgh, Leyden, Berlin, Halle, Tubingen, Paris, Montpellier, Bologna, Padua, Pavia, and Pisa. In the United States, the medical schools are numerous; at this time not fewer, perhaps, than 40. Those most numerously attended, are Jefferson Medical College of Philadelphia, the medical department of the University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Nashville.
