44 UOFLMAGAZINE.COM Seven certainly seems to be a lucky number for UofL, as years that end in "7" pop up in signifi- cant events throughout campus history. Here are seven schools, organizations and traditions that celebrated anniversaries in 2017. Some anniver- saries are centuries in the making while others are more recent. But all demonstrate that UofL has a long history of academic excellence and Cardinal tradition that continues today. In 1887, the Hospital College of Med- icine created a dental department, which led to the creation of the UofL School of Dentistry in 1918. This year is the 130-year milestone for the School of Dentistry. The school has an estimated 100,000 patient vis- its each year, allowing individuals and families access to oral care and allow- ing students to practice dentistry. In addition to hands-on training, the dental facility has some of the most advanced simulation technology available. With the school on the cut- ting edge of technology, the next 130 years are certain to produce plenty to smile about. The Louisville Medical Institute was founded in 1837 as Louisville's first med- ical school. It was later purchased by the University of Louisville and merged many times over the years, resulting in what is now recognized as the UofL School of Medicine. During its existence, the school has hosted one of the finest medical libraries in the country. This year, the school will celebrate 180 years of medical education in Lou- isville. The school has now graduated more doctors than any other institu- tion in the Commonwealth. UofL has since partnered with Norton Children's Hospital, Kentucky's only full-service, free-standing pediatric care facility dedicated exclusively to caring for children, and James Graham Brown Cancer Center, which is a global leader in immunotherapy in addition to having one of the largest clinical trial programs in the region.
