Шотландское происхождение русской медицинской элиты в начале XIX века

Диалог со временем. 2017. № 61. С. 216-234.

The article is concentrated on a governmental project to train professors of medicine for Russian universities and Medical and Surgical Academies from native Russians. The project was launched in 1816. The author of the project was a Scottish physician James Wylie who obtained the position of a surgeon at the Russian Imperial Court and was promoted at the presidential post in the Medical and Surgical Academy in St. Petersburg and appointed as the General Inspector for Army Board of Health. Wylie proposed to cease the international recruitment of professional physicians and to proceed with the training of Russian medical elite in the University of Edinburgh. The project was successfully implemented. The author places Wylie’s ideas in the contexts of medical and educational theories of the beginning of the 19th c. and demonstrates them originating from the political and economic concepts of the modern state.
