To the Editor : The Department of Medicine at the University of Cape Town (UCT) has recently celebrated 90 years of its existence. The first Professor of Medicine, Professor A W 'Oubaas' Falconer, from Aberdeen, Scotland, established the then Division of Medicine at the new UCT Medical School in February 1920. He contributed greatly to the establishment of clinical teaching, then at Somerset Hospital. In 1938 Groote Schuur Hospital (GSH) opened, at which time Falconer retired as Professor of Medicine to become Vice-Chancellor and Principal of UCT.
