Bennett, professor of the institutes of medicine at Edinburgh, helped to introduce a more science-based approach in medical education in the latter half of the 19th century. He was the first medical educator to institute practical classes in the teaching of physiology; also, unlike many of his colleagues, he embraced the microscope as a useful tool and was the first to teach its clinical use systematically, along with its uses in the teaching of pathology and physiology. Bennett’s Researches first appeared in the Edinburgh Medical and Surgical Journal, as indicated on the separate title of the duplicate part. See Garrison-Morton.com 1858, Bennett’s paper on cod liver oil; and 3061, his pioneering description of leukemia. (Inventory #: 44049)
