New England Journal of Medicine, 1964
"A British (mainly Scottish) tradition of medical education was transplanted fifty years ago to the southern tip of the African continent - a situation at that time of geographic, intellectual and cultural isolation. The result today is, in my opinion, an unqualified success. The standards of medical practice and medical education that have been achieved bear favorable comparison with most centers of medical education in the English-speaking world. The adaptations have involved no important points of princple. The application of Western standards to the extremely varied patterns of morbidity and mortality encountered in different racial or cultural groups locally has provided a very important stimulus to thought and research, which, in turn, has been a valuable stimulus to medical education."
