The Welsh National School of Medicine, 1893 - 1931: The Cardiff Years
ALUN ROBERTS. (2008), University of Wales Press, 416 pages. ISBN: 9780708321744 (0708321747)
Hardcover.
Available from: Amazon.co.uk
This is an account of the origins and development of Cardiff's, and Wales', medical school during the first four, often controversial, decades of its existence as part of the University College of South Wales and Monmouthshire. The book contributes not only to the history of medical education in the United Kingdom during a period of profound change, but also to the history of the University of Wales and its uneasy relationship with the Cardiff College. Indeed, the 1920s were characterised by often acrimonious disputes as to whether the medical school should remain within the College or, in accordance with its all-Wales role, become an independent institution.
