Philadelphia is a leading center for medicine, which is a distinction it's held since colonial times. The city's Pennsylvania Hospital was the first hospital, and University of Pennsylvania housed the first medical school in the Colonies. There are also major hospitals affiliated with Temple University School of Medicine, Drexel University College of Medicine, Thomas Jefferson University and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Not surprisingly, healthcare is the largest sector of employment in the city.
