It is perhaps a sign of the times?  In any case, Eizo (more specifically, the German medical imaging subsidiary of the Japanese company) has issued a pin-up calendar that cuts right to the bone:

As we think again about responding to the X-Ray Specs ad in the back of that comic book, we might recall that on this date in 1768, the first commencement of a U.S. medical college was held at the College of Philadelphia (now, The University of Pennsylvania.)  With the establishment of a the Department of Medicine in 1765, CoP had become the first medical school in the U.S.

The institution granted ten Bachelor of Medicine degrees at this first commencement. Being alphabetically at the head of the list, John Archer became the  first doctor in the U.S. to receive such a degree. Four of these ten also received a Doctor of Medicine degree from the college three years later, in 1771. (The first Doctor of Medicine degree was granted in 1770 at King’s College– now Columbia University– in New York.)
