prognosis, and treatment of disease. Illustrations of the fevers will be given by prearranged visits to the Hospitals of the Local Authority, chiefly on Saturdays (the class attending in groups of limited numbers). In the early part of the course, up to Christmas, instruction will be given, partly in lectures, and partly in the tutorial classes, on the elements of Physical Diagnosis-i.e., Auscultation and Percussion, &c., with reference chiefly to chest diseases; and the use of the thermometer, sphygmograph, laryngoscope, ophthalmoscope, &c.; the demonstrations on the use of these instrumental aids to physical diagnosis being conducted at special hours, and to subdivisions of the class, only so far as to constitute a preparation for hospital and dispensary work. From January onwards the discussion of special diseases will be continued, those of the Heart and Blood-vessels, and of the Nervous System being taken in succession. Professor Gairdner proposes to lecture in summer 1883,* on Diseases of the Abdomen (including the kidneys); which, without being included in the lectures of next winter, will form a part of the tutorial class work. The text-book of Dr. Bristowe is particularly recommended to be read along with the summer course, and with reference to the tutorial work of next winter. The course will be illustrated by drawings, wax casts, models, and preparations of morbid Anatomy; and the Lecturer will also refer to the cases under his care in the Infirmary, and, in general, will lead the student to look to his Hospital practice as the evidence in detail of what is stated in the class-room. Professor Gairdner conducts at the Western Infirmary part of the Clinical Instruction given to the medical students connected with the University.

Text Books.-Those most generally used in the class areBristowe's Theory and Practice of Medicine, 4th edition, 1882; Finlayson's Clinical Manual (for diagnosis and hospital work); and Tanner's Index of Diseases (for reference to remedies and formula). The following well-known systematic treatises, however, are also recommended, and may be used by those who prefer them, viz. :-Those of Sir Thomas Watson, Tanner (the larger work, including the smaller Index), Frederick Roberts,

* The class will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and will be open to all matriculated students of the University who have completed their second winter of medical study. It will, however, be distinct from Dr. Gairdner's Clinical Class at the Western Infirmary, which will be held as usual in summer.

Niemeyer (American Translation), Austin Flint (both his Practice and the more lately published Clinical Medicine). Aitken's "Science and Practice of Medicine" will be found specially useful by those who intend to enter the Army or Navy Medical Service. Graham Brown's, also Fenwick's Treatises on Medical Diagnosis, and Gee on "Auscultation and Percussion," are smaller and more special works, which will be found very serviceable. The Professor's "Clinical Medicine" (1862) is out of print, but will be found in the Reading Room, and may be used for occasional reference.


This Professorship, with which Botany was at first associated, was founded in 1718 by the Crown and College jointly. A separate Professorship of Botany was established in 1818, a distinct lectureship on that branch having existed for a considerable time previously.

In the WINTER SESSION, Anatomical Instruction is conducted in the following courses, viz. :—

1. DESCRIPTIVE OR ELEMENTARY COURSE OF LECTURES.This class meets on five days weekly, from 2 to 3 o'clock. The lectures comprehend a full systematic description of the Bones, Joints, and Muscles, and a general view of the Vascular and Nervous Systems, and of the more important Internal Viscera.

2. ADVANCED COURSE OF LECTURES AND DEMONSTRATIONS. -This class meets on five days weekly, from 11 to 12 o'clock. The course comprehends: 1st, A Description of the Distribution and Relations of the Blood-Vessels and Nerves, with Demonstrations of Regional or Topographical Anatomy; 2nd, a detailed Description of the Viscera, and of the Brain and Organs of the Senses; 3rd, General and Special Histology.

On Saturday, at 11 o'clock, the senior class meets weekly for Microscopical Demonstrations.

3. PRACTICAL ANATOMY, or DISSECTIONS made by the students, under the superintendence of the Professor and Demonstrators. The rooms are open from 9 to 4 o'clock daily, except on Saturdays, when they close at mid-day.

A tutorial class for junior students meets at a separate hour. Text-Books. Quain's Anatomy, or Gray's Anatomy, in conjunction with Turner's Introduction to Human Physiology; Ellis's Demonstrations; Cleland's Directory for Dissection.

In the SUMMER SESSION, the rooms for Practical Anatomy are open from 8 A.M. to 2 P.M. daily. Demonstrations are given on Surgical and Topographical Anatomy, as well as lectures on some of the higher branches of Anatomy; and Elementary Instruction for beginners is also provided.


This Professorship was founded by George III., in 1807. The Professor is appointed by the Crown. In 1876 Mrs. Honyman Gillespie, of Torbanehill, endowed a Lectureship in Geology, to be called the "Honyman Gillespie Lectureship," in memory of her husband, W. Honyman Gillespie, Esq. The Professor of Natural History is the present Lecturer.

The Lectures on Natural History will be delivered as follows:

1. A course of Lectures on Zoology, three days weekly (Monday, Wednesday, Friday), at 9 A.M., commencing in October.

2. A course of Lectures on Geology, three days weekly (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), at 5 P.M., commencing in November; and demonstrations or excursions on Saturdays.

Arrangements have been made for practical instruction in the Zoological Laboratory during the Summer Session.

Engineering students and candidates for Degrees in Science should arrange their classes so that their final examinations shall not take place till some months after their attendance at these classes.

The Professional Examinations in October, 1883, will have special reference to the Crustacea and Aves; those in April, 1884, to the Insecta and Reptilia.


This Professorship was founded in 1815, and is in the gift of the Crown.

The Professor delivers during winter a course of lectures on the Principles and Practice of Surgery, and in summer conducts a course of Operative Surgery. He also conducts at the Western Infirmary part of the Clinical Instruction given to the Medical Students connected with the University.

The Lectures embrace the Theory and Practice of Midwifery and the Diseases of Women and Children. The Professor was ex officio Physician to the University Lying-in Hospital and Dispensary, an institution which was many years ago established in the neighbourhood of the old College. The altered circumstances of the school having, however, rendered this institution unavailable for Clinical instruction, other arrangements have now been made by which the Managers of the Western Infirmary have placed a ward for the Diseases of Women under the charge of the Professor. An out-door department of Practical Midwifery has also been established by them, by which it is hoped that ample opportunities of Clinical instruction may be afforded to the students. To this, and also to the Glasgow Maternity Hospital, the Professor holds the appointment of Consulting Physician.


This Professorship was founded by George III. in 1817, previous to which time (from 1747) there were Lecturers on Chemistry appointed by the University. The Professor is appointed by the Crown.
