About the event
It seems that health and hospitals are never far from the gaze of the media, politicians and the citizenry. Colonel Annette Summers takes us back in time to test the notion that 'everything old is new again'." Just under ten years after the Medical School at the University of Adelaide was opened, in 1885, an incident occurred which shook the medical fraternity in Adelaide. This caused the author, Estcourt Hughes in his History of the Royal Adelaide Hospital, in 1967 to state that the affair was “and unhappy incident… and an unutterably lamentable... and discreditable actions on the part of some of the participants and regrettable ones on the part of many others.” This talk will explore the foundation of the Adelaide Hospital Row and its impact on medicine in South Australia.
