A History of Bristol Medical School: Personal and Collected Experiences of Students and Staff

This book is a well-referenced history of medicine and medical teaching in Bristol, with material on the development of individual hospitals and other providers of health care throughout the 18th to 21st centuries, and on teaching from the 16th century onwards. More material has been explored and included than previous histories on this topic, largely due to the accessibility of material on the internet, and the willingness of individuals to have their work digitised and made available. This book details the origins and development of the Bristol Medical School, from its beginnings to the present day.

Of necessity, there is overlap and inclusion with the development of other educational institutions, some that succeeded (the University of the West of England) and some that did not (the Bristol College).
