You might try contacting some of the local medical societies in the areas
where he practiced to see if he was a member and if they still have their
early records.

Can't speak to the practices in those states, but NY regulated the practice
of medicine as early as 1760. By 1806 the legislature allowed county medical
societies to form. Those societies were empowered to grant medical licenses.
Maybe it worked similarly doen there?

Subject: [APG] Medical School in 1835?

Does anyone have an idea about how one might learn where a budding
doctor might have gone to medical school in 1835, or if indeed one
would have necessarily attended a medical school?

My wife has an ancestor who was a doctor in Kentucky and Tennessee in
the second quarter of the 19th century. One account, not necessarily
trustworthy, says he attended medical school, not identified, about
1835. I'd like to see if there is any way to verify this claim.
