First published in 1872, the journal provides a historical record of the life and times of students and staff at King’s medical, dental and nursing schools, as well as the Guy's, St Thomas' and King's Hospitals (GKT).
This year the GKT Gazette celebrates 150 years of chronicling university and work life as experienced by the King’s community. After a couple years of inactivity it is being reinvigorated by a new, student-run, editorial team who plan to publish termly, with a view to ‘look back’ over the previous term
The whole process of bringing an issue of the Gazette together is student led, with a writing and editing team spanning medicine, dentistry and the allied health professions.
The Gazette has become an invaluable historical record of the life and times of the students and staff of the medical, dental and nursing schools, as well as a reflection of wider society itself from 1872 to today. Currently the King’s Archives hold a record spanning from 1872 to 1996 and the significance of this cultural and historical record has been recognised by the editorial team, who are currently working with the British Library to ensure digital/pdf, open access versions of all editions are available to the public.
The new editorial team hopes to continue this record for the years to come, with plans to publish future editions both online and in print.
Look out for printed copies in magazine booths across campuses or read the latest edition here.
Set up as an independent charity, the Gazette is supported by donations from King’s College London and its alumni.
