The timeline is prepared in segments of 25 years. It highlights the contributions to medicine and medical education by Michigan Medical School faculty and alumni and includes those benchmark events which mark the School as a leader or pioneer. The timeline also includes some significant events in medical history which help place the UM events in an overall context. As an example, the establishment of the nation's first psychiatric hospital associated with a university at the University of Michigan in 1906 is not long after the publication of Sigmund Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams in 1900.
