Our front-page story on Boston Medical Center’s Family Advocacy Program encouraged us to look back at another time in the history of BU’s School of Medicine. Here “children greet Med student on a house call,” according to the 1962 Hub yearbook. House calls were once part of the training that enabled future doctors to link the health of children with their environment. At the time, the School of Medicine offered courses in social and environmental medicine, comprising its Home Medical Service, which was run by MED’s department of preventive medicine and the Home Medical Service of the Massachusetts Memorial Hospital.
