For some reason, Dr. Stockton
chose to continue and complete his medical education at the newly
formed Louisville Medical
College in the state of Kentucky. It may have been because he
was from Kentucky.
The University of Louisville School
of Medicine traces its history from the Louisville Medical Institute
(1837 to 1845), the Medical Department of the University of Louisville
(1846 to 1922), and other schools absorbed by the University of
Louisville including the Kentucky School of Medicine (1850 to 1908), the
Louisville Medical College
(1869 to 1908), the Hospital
College of Medicine (1873 to 1908), and the Kentucky University Medical
Department (1898 to 1907).
