The Bennett College of Eclectic Medicine, opened as a coeducational school in 1868. Eclectic practitioners, a popular alternative medicine, claimed to select the most effective forms of medical treatment from among all available therapies and avoided the depleting methods of bleeding and purging that characterized "regular" medicine. [See "Medical Education, Encyclopedia of Chicago, on the web.] In 1910 Bennett Medical College merged with Loyola Univeristy of Chicago, and the institution eventually became the Stritch School of Medicine of Loyola University of Chicago {See the Stritch School of Medicine website].
