Medicine, Department of

The Department traces its origins to the beginning of the Faculty of Medicine in 1854 when Dr. James Sampson was appointed the first Professor of Clinical Medicine and Surgery. The Department grew rapidly in the first half of this century under the leadership of Dr. Walter Connell and his son, Ford Connell, who succeeded him as Department Head.

Today, it is one of the departments at the heart of the medical curriculum and offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs and continuing medical education for practising doctors.
