College of Physicians
College of Physicians

Designed by the distinguished architectural firm of Cope & Stewardson, the College of Physicians of Philadelphia’s 22nd Street building is an unusually bold example of an early 20th century institutional building designed in the classicism of 17th century England. Deemed a National Historic Landmark in 2002, “this building illuminates what is perhaps the central theme of the history of American medicine, the transformation of an exclusive and somewhat guild-like trade into a modern profession.” The grandest of the spaces, Mitchell Hall, is the venue for our Emerging Voices Project panel discussions. The hall features a 30-foot rococo ceiling, large leaded glass windows, and a period dais.

The College of Physicians is wheelchair accessible and ADA compliant. For more information on this venue, please click here.
