Did you know that (among many other topics) April is National Internship Awareness Month? For Tuberculosis Thursday, we wanted to share this great photograph of summer interns and staff at Trudeau Sanatorium in 1953. This photograph was in our collection, but we didn't know much about the individuals pictured beyond Drs. Meade and Mitchell. Luckily, Bernice Wylie (then Russell) stumbled across the photograph on our wiki and supplied the following information about it!
"Seated, from left, Dr. Gordon Meade, Dr. Roger Mitchell, the woman doctor was from New York City doing a short post-graduate course, the others are unknown. The back row were five third year medical students on a program of six weeks duration. From left: Lansing C. Hoskins, Bernice Russell (now Wylie), unknown, Clay E. Phillips Jr., unknown. The interns were entering their final year of medicine at the University of Rochester, except for Bernice Russell who was at the University of Toronto Medical School."
