bullet  General Notes:

Educated at Marischal College, Aberdeen. Became a private tutor of
Mathematics and accompianed his pupil to University College, Oxford

medicine. Arbuthnot presented himself at the University of St
Andrews, which like Oxford did not teach medicine, but from this time
also granted the doctorate; enrolled as a student of medicine; and on
the same day successfully defended seven theses °De secretione
animaliumŪ (titles printed by George Mosman, 1696), and graduated MD.
