Excerpt from Edinburgh Medical Journal, Vol. 2: With Which Is Incorporated the Scottish Medical and Surgical Journal In referring to this subject last month we did not think it necessary to emphasise the fact that one of the surgeons to the Royal Infirmary was not participating in the new arrangement. But since Mr. Cathcart has asked the courtesy of our columns - a courtesy we readily allow - to state his objections to the scheme, we felt that it was necessary to deal more fully with the subject. The Chairman of the School of Medicine of the Royal Colleges, being a member of the University Court, could hardly be approached, and we accordingly asked the Vice-Chairman (Dr. George Gibson) to read Mr. Cathcart's letter and to state his view of the subject in the same Journal which contains so full a criticism of the new proposals. We confess that we wrote as we did last month in the belief - a belief which we still hold - that the new scheme met with almost unanimous approval. It is perfectly true that some of the advocates of the new movement did favour the abolition of the Chair of Clinical Surgery, but they, at the same time, suggested a scheme which bears the closest possible relationship to that now put forward, in which the Professor of Clinical Surgery should, like an archbishop, be primus inter pars and ex-officio Chairman of a Board of Study for Clinical Surgery. It was because the Chair of Clinical Surgery was regarded by some as an insuperable obstacle to this arrangement that its abolition was advocated. Everyone admits the great benefit which the University of Edinburgh has derived from the healthy competition of the Extra-Mural School. Instead of aiming a blow at both of these, the advocates of the new movement believe that it would strengthen both, and, above all, that it would, in so doing, strengthen what we all have most at heart - the good of the Edinburgh Medical School as a whole. There will be plenty healthy rivalry among the lecturers. The University Court is not really composed of modern Machiavellis.
