Study Subject: History of the Polish School of Medicine in Edinburgh
Employer: School of History, Classics and Archaeology Graduate Study
Level: Doctoral
Scholarship Description: The Polish School of Medicine was established in Edinburgh in 1941 in the wake of German occupation of Poland and trained over 300 men and women in a comprehensive undergraduate medical education programme. Clinical teaching took place at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and other hospitals including the Paderewski Memorial Hospital, which was opened in 1941 at the Western General Hospital. The history and celebration of the Polish School of Medicine has given rise to an extensive archive of documents and photographs that is housed in the Edinburgh University Centre for Research Collections and is largely un-catalogued.
The PSM 70th Anniversary Doctoral Project, starting in September 2011, will be based in the School of History, Classics and Archaeology with funding from the School of History, Classics and Archaeology, the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine and the Polish School of Medicine Historical Collection Fund. It will be part supervised from the EU Centre for Research Collections and will include, from the second year, the student’s involvement in the cataloguing of the PSM paper archive.
