Concentrating on the examination of medicine, healthcare, and medical ethics in broad social contexts, The College of Physicians of Philadelphia is a repository for the history of medicine, an active forum for critical debate, and an interpreter and disseminator of information to legislators, policymakers, and the general public.
THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE COLLEGE
The College of Physicians will address critical needs by developing support for its three most important assets—our PEOPLE, our PROGRAMS, and our PLACE.
Annual gifts support the College’s growth as an exciting and vital educational institution, while ensuring that it continues its centuries-old tradition of serving medical professionals.
Mütter Membership not only gives you access to exclusive members-only benefits, it also helps preserve our collections for future visitors and enables us to provide unforgettable educational opportunities to students by introducing them to science, medicine, and technology.
This Giving Tüesday we need your help to get one of the largest objects in our collection restored and back on display for visitors to see again!
ANNUAL FELLOWSHIP AND SECTION DUES

ARCH ST. BONES PROJECT
The Arch Street Project was born out of a salvage archaeology project at the site of the First Baptist Church of Philadelphia's burial ground. The cemetery was moved in 1860 and became private property. In 2016, during a construction project, human remains were uncovered. It quickly became apparent that over 100 individuals were not relocated during the 1860 move. The remains were removed from the property between February 20 - March 13, 2017.
