Our legacy as a teaching hospital dates from 1882, when the Faculty of Medicine of the Western University of London, Ontario (now The University of Western Ontario [UWO]), opened in a white frame cottage on St. By 1887, there were 60 students, too many for the original site, and a new building was constructed at Waterloo and York Streets.
Change came in 1921, with the opening of a new building at South and Waterloo Streets, and in 1965, when the Faculty moved to the university campus.
As London's first clinical site for medical education, the London General Hospital contributed to the development of the Faculty.
In 1883, the London General Training School for Nurses opened with three students enrolled—the third nursing school opened in Canada.
