Sample text

MALLESON Research Unit for Student Problems, University of London I SPEAK as Secretary of an ad hoc committee which formed itself together in 1962 in order to promote a case for a new pattern of medical school in this country. The Steering Committee set up three working parties, one under Professor R. E. Tunbridge, one under Sir Harry Platt and one under Sir Charles Morris. These three reports were published together in November 1963. I do not propose to speak at great length paraphrasing these reports, as I believe the great majority of you in the audience have already seen them.

If not stifled by prejudice or starved by neglect in the school years, it can attract and hold the attention of literary men no less than physicists, conveying to the former an understanding of the beauty of scientific HUMAN BIOLOGY IN GENERAL UNIVERSITY EDUCATION 35 creation and explanation and to the latter an inkling of the complex diversity and intricate individuality of living things. Such a study could form the basis of a common Humanist culture. I do not think literary men should be afraid of it, or raise cries of treating man as a machine.

There would be some psychology and some of the basic sociological principles that are applied to medicine. The essential of such a course is that it be highly organized and integrated as a single and consistent development of thought and teaching, not a hotch-potch. The Committee has envisaged that there would be some three or four schools of human biology, perhaps each with an intake of ioo students annually, of which perhaps a quarter would feed into one central clinical school. The great importance of such an idea is that the majority of the people on the course would be intending to pursue other careers than clinical medicine, and the course would therefore be pitched at general educational and scientific level rather than have any narrow vocational aim.
