Title
Moses French Colby et la pratique médicale dans le comté de Stanstead pendant le deuxième tiers du XIXe siècle
Abstract
Educated in medicine at Yale (1819), Dartmouth (1821) and Harvard (1828) universities after having studied with a local doctor, Moses French Colby (1795-1863) moved his practice from Derby, Vermont, across the border to the Eastern Townships village of Stanstead Plain in 1832. Although he supported the establishment of the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Canada East in 1847, he took strong exception to the requirement of the regulatory body that all medical students attend one of the province's two medical schools and pass an examination in order to practice. Colby felt this undermined the practical and personal element of training, leaving the medical student with much rote information but little experience or understanding.
