File: Postgraduate Medical Education

Scope and Content

Papers relating to the development of postgraduate medical education at the University in the post-war period. Postgraduate in this context relates to continuing education courses for general practitioners and junior hospital staff rather than research degrees in medical subjects. The file includes material on planning courses in the early NHS era, including training for trainee assistants to GPs. The file includes a number of interesting memoranda about the organization of postgraduate education including a paper of 1963 concerning future developments which includes comments by Walter Schlapp (dean of Faculty) and Jonas Kellgren (dean of postgraduate education).
