[Perspectives] Sad stories of the death of kings

For the medical students and researchers of the UK’s Oxford University, the dreaming spires are more often seen distantly from a window than experienced close up. Preclinical medics are taught in modern, characterless buildings located up on leafy South Parks Road; and since the Radcliffe Infirmary was repurposed as Radcliffe Humanities some years ago, clinical students must get the bus or cycle out to the newer hospitals in Headington to pursue their studies. Since September a small team from Oxford’s Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine (CEBM) has managed to commandeer a prime spot in the heart of the city: the Bodleian Library, an attraction popular with both humanities scholars and tourists.
