Frontiers of Medicine: A History of Medical Education and Research at the University of Alberta

By Elise A. Corbet | Go to book overview

Preface

TO RECORD the full story of the hundreds of faculty and staff, the thousands of students and the hundreds of thousands of patients, each of whom played a part in the development of this major academic medical centre, is a formidable task. Many of the anecdotes of the early efforts to establish a first class medical school, remote from the world's major medical centres, will, of necessity, live on only in the memories of those associated with the institution in its formative years. Each generation will have its own memories of the challenges and rewards, of the frustrations and successes, and of the talents and idiosyncrasies of their colleagues in the development of this vast enterprise.

It is also important, however, to examine that record and draw from it the provincial themes that will provide a comprehensive understanding of the Faculty of Medicine's evolution at the University of Alberta. Current and future members of the faculty, as well as people more generally interested in the development of modern health care, will profit from attention to its historical roots. Here, then, will be found the highlights and the long term trends in a fascinating story of the efforts of dedicated and compassionate professionals of many disciplines working together toward a common goal -- the pursuit of excellence in patient care, research and the "provision of doctors for tomorrow."

D. F. (Tim) Cameron M.D., F.R.C.P.C., F.A.C.A. Dean, Faculty of Medicine, University of Alberta, 1974-1983
