"Among the English clinical teachers of the 18th century, there is no name more justly and highly esteemed than that of William Cullen. A pupil of Monro primus, he was instrumental in founding the medical school of Glasgow (1744), and during his long life he held the chairs of medicine and chemistry at both Glasgow and Edinburgh. He was one of the first to give clinical or infirmary lectures in Great Britain, and these lectures were the first ever given in the vernacular" (Garrison, History of Medicine, pp. 357-58).
