Inscription. On this site in 1823 the faculty of the University of Maryland College of Medicine erected the Baltimore Infirmary, the first teaching hospital associated with a degree-granting school of medicine and the original residency program in medical education. The Infirmary, facing Lombard Street, was enlarged with additions along Greene Street throughout the nineteenth century and was replaced by the University Hospital in 1897. The last of the buildings was razed in 1974.
