This chapter examines the developments in the teaching of biomedical sciences at Oxford University in England from 1914 to 1939. Though the medical faculty was established in 1885, its teaching and research had little to do with the care and the cure of patients in local hospitals. The objective of the medical school was to give a broad and liberal education in biomedical sciences while avoiding the vocational element in teaching. In 1930, Oxford's first college fellow in medicine acknowledged that preclinical scientific studies pursued at Oxford tended to be divorced from actual clinical experience.
