King's College Hospital Medical School Committee

Administrative / Biographical history

The King's College London Transfer Act was passed in 1908 (coming into force in 1909), and King's College London was incorporated in the University of London. The Committee of Management of King's College Hospital took over the School of Advanced Medical Studies, bringing into existence King's College Hospital Medical School, while the Faculty of Medical Science remained at the College. The Committee of Management appointed the government of the Medical School, assisted by the Medical School Committee. The Medical School Committee consisted of the Chairman, the Vice-Chairman and the Treasurer of the Committee of Management, and the Dean of the Medical School, together with six members of the Committee of Management and six members chosen by the Medical Board. Under the provisions of the National Health Service Act, 1946, the Medical School was incorporated as a separate legal entity in 1948, distinct from the Hospital, with its own governing body, the Council of the Medical School.
