Noble goals, dedicated doctors
Since the 1970s, Dr. Jock Murray has been collecting stories about the early days and ongoing evolution of Dalhousie Medical School and shaping them into a comprehensive history.
His years of dedication have culminated in Noble Goals, Dedicated Doctors: The Story of Dalhousie Medical School, published by Nimbus in December 2017 — just in time to kick off the year of celebrations marking the medical school’s 150th anniversary in 2018.
“It was not easy to convince Dalhousie College to open a medical school,” recounts Dr. Murray. “The college was barely on its feet in the 1860s and its leaders knew a medical school would be costly. Plus, there was no general hospital for hands-on practice with patients, no anatomy act to allow dissection of bodies for learning purposes, and little understanding even of the importance of medical education itself.”
