    About the Organization:
    When the University of Chicago Medical Center opened its doors to the community in fall 1927, it had two clinical departments: medicine and surgery. Since then, the medical campus has grown to include 60 adult and 44 pediatric specialties. The Medical Center ranks among the best in the country in cancer treatment, digestive disorders, diabetes and endocrinology, according to U.S. News & World Report?s survey of the nation?s hospitals. University of Chicago physician-scientists performed the first organ transplant and the first bone marrow transplant in animal models, the first successful living-donor liver transplant, the first hormone therapy for cancer and the first successful application of cancer chemotherapy. Its researchers discovered REM sleep and were the first to describe several of the sleep stages. Twelve of the Nobel Prize winners have been affiliated with the University of Chicago Medicine.
