Ya know, I dont even know if they had residencies back then, or if they were even called that. :laugh:

I think were talking a time period spanning the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century.

The term "residency" in the context of medicine arose from Johns Hopkins. Hopkins of course was established near the end of the 19th century, circa 1881 (?). Someone can look that one up fairly easily, I'm sure.

We know those studies were all bogus.
