Synopsis: Since the 1970s, the Otago Medical School has in fact been three schools, based in Dunedin, Christchurch, and Wellington. Its graduates include many distinguished researchers and practitioners all over the world. Modeled on the Edinburgh School, and operating within a relatively new university, the School had a long struggle for resources in a country that was still establishing its home economy. Often only the vision and determination of individual staff carried the school forward, while the world in which it operated kept changing with several revolutions in medicine, technology, and society. As the author says in her introduction of the Otago Medical Schoolâs history, "It has been an exhilarating journey."

Book Description Otago University Press. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Anatomy of a Medical School: A History of Medicine at the University of Otago, 1875-2000, Dorothy Page, Otago University's Medical School is Australasia's second oldest -- after Melbourne (1862) and before Sydney (1883) -- and this major history of the school has just been published. Modelled on the Edinburgh School, and operating within a relatively new university when it was founded in 1875, the School had a long struggle for resources in a country that was still establishing its domestic economy. The gold rushes made Otago rich and Provincial Superintendent James Macandrew pushed for the School's establishment. In the following years, often only the vision and determination of individual staff carried it forward. And as the School moved into the twentieth century, the world in which it operated kept changing, with several revolutions in medicine, technology, society and education. While "Anatomy of a Medical School" has to include an account of funding and building, author Dorothy Page has focused on people: the administrators, clinical teachers and researchers, students and graduates. Just how were perpetrators of pranks in Anatomy turned into sober medical practitioners and specialists? There is a sense in which a medical school is forever made up of its past, as well as its present students, because they carry its teaching and influence out into the world. Otago's graduates include humanitarian activists, war heroes, and political leaders as well as general practitioners and surgeons. And they are to be found on every continent and in most countries. Then there are the firsts: first Maori medical graduate in Te Rangi Hiroa, better known as Sir Peter Buck (1904), first female medical graduate in Emily Siedeberg (1896), first New Zealand woman to register as a medical practitioner in Margaret Cruickshank (1897), first New Zealand-born Governor General in Sir Arthur Porritt. The list goes on. It is impossible for one book to tell the story of the many gifted men and women who, between them, built an institution whose reputation for excellence in research and teaching is yet another Kiwi model of achievement against the odds. As the author says in her introduction, 'It has been an exhilarating journey.'. Bookseller Inventory # B9781877372247
