Biographical history

Philip Burnett, of Montreal, was founder of the first dermatological clinic at the Royal Victoria Hospital in 1904. After attending Clifton College, Bristol, he graduated in medicine from McGill University in 1900 and continued postgraduate training in England, France, Germany and Austria before and after World War I. In 1901 he received the diplomas of L.R.C.P. and M.R.C.S. In 1914 he took an active part in the formation of the No. 6 Field Ambulance Corps and in the following year went overseas with the rank of major. While serving in France he was named consultant dermatologist to the Second Canadian Army. He was promoted to the rank of colonel during the war and was awarded the Distinguished Service Order. He was a charter member and the first president of the Montreal Dermatological Society, in 1930-31. In 1942 he retired as dermatologist at the Royal Victoria Hospital and also a professor of clinical dermatology at McGill University, an appointment he had held for many years.
