Kuhn was born in Germantown, son of German immigrant parents, studied Medicine and Natural history under Linnaeus in Uppsala, where he was Linnaeus' probably only American student. He continued his studies at the University of Edinburgh, where he graduated as M.D. in 1767. Returning to America, he practiced as a physician in Philadelphia and was 1768–1797 professor of Materia medica and the Theory and Practice of Medicine at the Medical School of the College of Philadelphia (later the University of Pennsylvania), founded in 1765 as the first faculty of Medicine in the thirteen colonies.
