Abstract

There is a lack of information in Great Britain on the planning and on the design of university medical schools. In the absence of established criteria, medical school planners are required to set about a tedious compilation of requisite information by an empirical rather than a methodical process. It is realized that this process is unavoidable at the outset of medical school planning, but it is felt that it could be simplified by more standardized procedural methods. In the first two chapters, an attempt is made to provide a brief chronoligical survey of events in medical education up to the present time, laying emphasis on the historical associations of British medical schools and how traditions have come to influence present attitudes. An attempt is also made to examine future trends in medical education as they are likely to influence the, design of medical schools. In the initial stages of any medics! school design, it is considered essential to establish a broad framework along which the design may develop. Such a framework will need to encompass a variety of factors, but the foremost of these concerns medical school objectives and their evaluation, and the general pattern that planning is to follow in the attainment of these objectives. To this end, and on the basis of some recent planning efforts, a number of medical schools'patterns of accommodation are provided in Chapter 3 which, it is hoped, may serve as a guide to medical school planners. The final chapter is a study of practical applications on medical school design which are considered to embody some of the criteria established in the former chapters, with special reference to possible developments in medical student teaching.
