Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
In 1870 Glasgow Royal Infirmary was effectively deprived of its medical school with the removal of Glasgow University to its new site at Gilmorehill and with the opening of the Western Infirmary in 1874. To replace this loss the Royal Infirmary Medical School was opened in 1876 and in 1882 a new building was opened by the Infirmary with class rooms and laboratory facilities for the instruction of students in the medical curriculum. In 1889 to afford greater facilities the school was incorporated into a college, known as St Mungo's College. Steadily it gained in reputation until in 1911 several university chairs were instituted there. St Mungo's College remained one of the extra-mural medical schools in Glasgow until shortly after the end of the Second World War, when it closed as an independent institution in favour of concentrating medical teaching in the universities and the new National Health Service.
