About Us

Welcome to The College of Physicians of Philadelphia, where your event can take its proper place in history.

This beautiful New Beaux-Arts style building, constructed in 1908 and designed by Cope and Stewardson, has the unique distinction of being home to the oldest medical society in the country (founded in 1787) and the renowned Mütter Museum.

As guests walk inside, they are surrounded by grandeur and elegance, and greeted by Aesculapius – the Greek god of medicine. The magnificent columned Marble Rotunda, with its view of a classic grand staircase, sets the stage for any occasion.

With its historic ambience and stately architecture, it’s no wonder that the College – located in Philadelphia’s charming Rittenhouse-Fitler Historic District – has been the chosen setting for a diverse range of memorable events.

Catering By Design is the exclusive catering and hospitality partner to The College of Physicians of Philadelphia.  With Catering By Design comes an entirely new way of entertaining that blends expertly prepared cuisine with striking conceptual design. Our event professionals walk you through every step of the event, from decor to your customized menu, entertainment and facilities, to the day-of details.
